I've gone about as far as I'd mapped out.
"Get off the Harley, Bigfoot." That line has been in my head for weeks.
So now I need to make it all up again. I purposely didn't want to get that far ahead, but now's the time. It is also time to ask the question, that is almost like a mantra to me--the same question I used to ask myself at bedtime for most of my business years.
"What have I done that I shouldn't have--and what haven't I done that I should have?"
I know I want to ramp up the tension again, just as Hart thinks he's making his escape. Instead of seven killer mercenaries after him, the entire apparatus of the state--dogs and helicopters and ORV's and professional trackers, closing the cordon around him little by little.
He now has a companion, a love interest, so that ought to make it interesting, at least to me as a writer.
About 1/3rd the book left, with only the last 4 or 5 chapters figured out. The rest is action--chase and escape. I'm figuring about 8 chapters or so.
I'm actually kind of excited at the opportunity to create again, instead of just writing what I've already figured out. Heh.
