In the non-fiction world, we have (fairly) detailed outlines. Not really detailed. A half-dozen key points for a chapter.

This leads to a schedule. The schedule is (of course) an absolute fantasy. The future is hard to predict, and putting specific dates and word counts into a spreadsheet does not guarantee anything. But. That’s the way it works.

I think I’m working in chapters originally slated to be finished in February 2021. That’s a good thing. At this pace, all 14 chapters may be done by February. Then I can go back to fiction.

That would be pleasant. The notion of Book I, The Pit, as series of worsening situations seems like it will be a fun rewrite. In particular, the original draft provided too much information from the Mage’s perspective. These are better handled as things that need to be learned. Painfully.
