What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Another one bites the dust

Chapter 23 is done. I didn't think it was (finished Monday), but there were only a few more words that needed to be added to get to a natural break. So, another 1106 words, which is okay because not much happens (comparatively). A (hopefully final) subplot got started. One action in Chapter 22 didn't make so much sense, but now it all starts to make sense. This one, however, is a biggun. As in, if there is more than one book, this subplot will continue through. It also solves another problem I figured would be handled in the rewrite, but this is a little more elegant and natural. Adds to the world building and makes our hero's life a little more complex.

Also got a bunch of 24 done today as well (maybe 650 words). There's also a bunch that I thought would be in 22, but now looks like chapter 26 or so. While doing 24 I realized why I focused on a certain event in the earlier chapters, I didn't think it would be a thing, but now I know it will be. Not sure how it'll play out, but I know what starts it.

So with chapters "done" I'm up to 38,115 words. Go me.
