Writing again, after over a week away from the story. It’s good to be back at it!
Today’s goal was to solidify the step outline up until the critical Midpoint moment of the second act, which is where the tide of fortune will suddenly and dramatically turn against Joe. It felt rewarding to reach "up to" that moment… though not as rewarding as it would have been if I had also written that actual moment. Hopefully, I can achieve that in the next couple of days.
