I fought this, kicking and screaming. I had no idea where she was going with it. I felt totally at sea. After brainstorming with my granddaughter, I knew what I had to do, but I still wasn't happy with it.
I started working on Ch. 38 today. And guess what, in one sitting, I wrote it all. I've got some more work to do on it before I consider it truly done, but for all intents and purposes, I've got a completed Ch. 38.
Honestly, I never would have thought I'd finish it in one sitting. I was so opposed to the change in my own plans for the story. I guess the Muse knew where she was going with it. Sometimes, I wish she'd tell me. It would save me a lot of angst!
I'm going to put it up on the "Progress" side right now.
Life is good.
