I must admit, I have not done much work on the novel since finishing Chapter XI on Monday. Two of my lunches this week have been taken up with other activities than writing/planning, and a third was spent reading. Today was the first day I actually began cobbling together an outline for Chapter XII. Tomorrow, with Jamie out of town, work begins in earnest.

And let me tell you, Chapter XII is going to be MASSIVE. It is the climax of the novel, and in my opinion is only rivalled by about two or three other events in the whole of the Second Punic War. It is the point when those pesky Nazis show up and capture our heroes. Oh, wait, that’s Indiana Jones.

Seriously, though, this chapter is going to be huge. Like the Helm’s Deep sequence in The Two Towers.

With any luck, the real writing starts tomorrow. Sunday at the latest.
