The good guys have some seriously good magical kit and so does the bad guy.
On the one hand, there's no tension because the good guys have such excellent resources and capacity.
On the other hand, the bad guy can bring dark forces to bear and negate what the good guys have.
It's like a stalemate that stops me from completing the rewrite of the final scene. I've been paralysed like this for months. The rewrite should be fun. I thought I'd solved it with a mega twist but it's gone from being a placeholder scene that I churned out just to finish the first draft to being a mega stalemate.
I just needed to ventilate that fact. I have no idea what advice anyone could give to help with this. It's been a problem for almost a year and the WIP is huge, detailed and lots of fun. I can't bear to abandon it, I can't bear to take a lengthy holiday from it because I've tried that and it doesn't help.
Oy! It's soooooooooo frustrating.
