Even bad guys have their own BAD GUY!

Well, baby Sawyer arrived at 10:53am yesterday… and I did quite well spending the entire day with wife and family and didn’t even think about the writing thing… well, not until I got home later in the evening, but by then I was simply too tired… but today my wife said “Go write” and gave me permission to take some time and go hunker down at the coffee shop to crank out a chapter… I’ve had plenty of time to mull this one over, so it went fast but is fairly accurate to what I meant for the chapter and the plot.

There’s a bad guy… but even he has someone he answers to and chapter 20 introduced a hint of this person (name and basic background plus a few sentences of dialogue that hint of things to come – either in this book or maybe a sequel if that’s ever a possibility).  The bad guy’s bad guy.  And a bit more of the story is explained, including a few plot points that I’ve been trying to find a way to introduce.  At the 50% mark, it’s time for surprises to end, so I think I’ve done a pretty good job of getting the major plot points explained, all the major characters introduced, etc… the rest of the chapters will focus on building the conflict to the end and then resolution… hopefully.

Chapter 20 was another setup chapter, but this one takes place in the bad guy’s realm.  A major set of events is about to occur in Chapter 21 through maybe Chapter 24, and a lot of people need to be put into place and a few situations setup… and all that’s done.  Now the gunfire and explosions can start up again… but this time the hero is ticked off and his confidence has increased… he’s mad and not afraid of a fight.  Chapter 21 should be fun…
