National Novel Writing Month: Day 21

The story moved back from A plot back to B plot tonight. I reached a spot that I’d thought would be the first crisis but which I’m thinking now may be the midpoint. Either way, three cheers for outlines. Although the outline I have is sketchy, the main points of escalation are there like life preservers dotting the broad channel I’ve elected to swim. They tend to come along right when drowning seems imminent. My goal for the week after Thanksgiving, in addition to completing the 50K challenge, is going to be to outline what I have and then what I want to have, chapter by chapter.
