Writing Out of Sequence – Set Up

Image hosting by PhotobucketHuh. All right, I went to a chapter that I'd been working on a while back and found I'd set up a scene but have no clue where it was supposed to go. I hadn't left myself any notes.

I THINK that I was going to explain a magical world-building concept here since I had characters on hand (Marian and Jaquar) who are Sorcerers who could explain it in dialogue. But I reread the previous chapter and I think that's enough, as well as putting in a sentence of exposition. So though I worked on the scene, I think it's time for it to go into the "hold" file where all my out-takes are. I'll use a couple more paragraphs to tell what happens and then move on to the next, more important, scene.

May you write fast and good today.
