Ah, the joys of discovery writing.Reached 25,103 words. I'm thinking this is half-way, but new events keep cropping up.
Nice observation. I've found that too, reaching story points that have been in the plan for years. Sometimes they've built up such a weight I get scared I'll never do them justice.Writing about the swarm of rats entering the village and the black boils appearing in the armpits of villagers took on an emotional gravity for me that was somewhat strange bearing in mind it's not real, but I've been working up to writing this moment for eighteen months and it always felt like I'd never get here.
