At least not yet.
But I did give myself permission to take a break yesterday. Just for that day however. I think it's only fair since my relationship is about ending (sort of... somewhat) and the person I love is leaving permanently. But I'm still going to keep working on this novel, as I have been working on this novel in my spare time anyways.
I have found that talking into my phone's voice recorder while driving to and from work/school has become a great asset for sorting out my thoughts and this has enabled me to help establish a more solid grand timeline for the course of the story. At one point I was uncertain as to when and where the advent of "Machinations" and "Gambit" would occur, and in which order, but now I'm certain that "Gambit" would come first, and I am also certain that "Machinations" will have to come after. The reasons being is that after Vyela establishes herself and aligns herself with the Redeemers during the course of Gambit, even in the face of being able to choose to undermine some of her enemies, creates situation in which the Redeemers begin to think of her as not just a Guild asset, but an associate instead. Many Redeemers even begin to grow close to her as she proves herself in combat and loyalty to those she considers friends. This in turn will make it more viable and believable when a group of Redeemers volunteer to rescue Vyela during Machinations.
I have also done more work in the events following Between Blood and Bolts, as it was a period of which I was incredibly uncertain of what would occur. I understood that the Redeemers would pursue resources with which to rebuild themselves further (after all, their first resource after Dark Day was stealing supplies from the Brothers of Blood, and after the third book the Law Guild is nearly disbanded), but I did not have a truly established "identity" for a particular villain. I've decided to run Vyela headlong into her past as a result when she fights the Sheer (an incredibly powerful but strange Jylian syndicate), and this will still keep Vyela in the picture as the lead protagonist and will even give readers a little more of Jylia's past as I am imagining that the Nightmare City will become quite popular.
More to come later, but right now it is time to work.
