I’m settling in with half a mug of vanilla ice cream, enough hot espresso to drown it with, and the second half of Chapter 11 to finish off.

Wish me luck.

Later:

Ok, done for the night. Wrote some 2,000 words, almost finished the Chapter. Crucial 2,000 words though – a lot of things have suddenly fallen into place, interlocked tightly and perfectly, and I’m feeling confident now. The whole plot has solidified, grown more concrete and consistent, and that, my dear readers, is a very good thing.
