I think I’ve officially finished the first half of the next chapter of To Crash Upon the Shore. It’s the easy half. It was still a big damn challenge. Oof. ;) The original scene is so good that it’s a lot to live up to, especially since I’m simultaneously pulling the story in a different direction AND still having to hit several of the same marks. WHY DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF.

The line I might be most satisfied with, though: “You don’t get to blame all the little voices in your head for this. Not even mine.”
