Chaos reigns at this stage in the battle – then there is another threat which deals a blow to the defending side. One minor character tries to eliminate it, but is unsuccessful. At this point, I have decided to have the main character trying to intervene and make amends, by doing something heroic. He is not doing it to seek glory – what does he have to gain from that? The point is that he has nothing to lose, so it makes no difference to him. His headstrong actions gain derision from another protagonist. The role of this latter character will become more apparent as the story progresses.
I hope to get to the end of this battle scene as soon as possible. I like a challenge, but I’m looking forward to getting back to some of the later narrative. The diversity of this novel is one thing which makes it a pleasure to write!
Until the next post….
