Chapter 8.5 – a later look

I’m making good (though slow) progress on this chapter of Finnegans Afoot. It starts out mild and ends with a bang. The tension level of the story gets kicked up, and several important points get set up, so I’m working hard to make sure it’s done right.

One or two more sessions ought to get it finished, then I can go back to the final chapters of the novel yet to be written. (I realized I needed a chapter inserted earlier in the story, so I stopped where I was and went back there to write that needed chapter.)

All of this is symptomatic of the scattered creative trials I have suffered with this novel. Although it is now all coming together satisfactorily, it needed to have been imagined more thoroughly before I got started writing it. When the time comes for a complete read through, I think there are going to be a lot of rough spots that will need smoothing.
