Just moments ago I was going through some other Prequel related files I'd forgotten about and compiling them into the New Chapter Tew. then i reformatted it for editing (.9 inch margins all around, 9 point gray font, 1.5 spacing) and saved it on my external hard drive thingie to take it over to the other computer to print.
then i scrolled all the way to the bottom and was reading the point where the story would connect back up to Chapter Two and it's fricking perfect. All the stuff in Tew introduces the main character as well as the three people who care about her and teach her stuff and attempt to make her a little less reckless. chapter two starts up with her being injured, again, but not out of recklessness. we move into Edonith professing his love to her finally, and then on into the real conflict of the story, the truth of her past.
whoo. i'm getting more and more excited. now i have to take a shower, but i might not, since i took one late last night and it is far too windy for a curly hair day. i can just do pigtails with what i've got and spend the next hour playing Lego Star Wars... yes, i think that is what i will do.
