Continuing, we will move from feeding our stories to revelations, and, potentially, mitigations. That means we start playing with the payoff. All that work we've done making our characters likeable or despicable, all those bread crumbs we've been laying down, everything we've been working toward comes to fruition. It's time to start tying our knots. For me I start with a side plot, the resolution of which is required for the big reveal. There's usually a few loose strings that get tied after the climax. How about you?

Oh, wait, you mean we're supposed to finish stories, not just abandon them halfway? Oops.

That's right. And I'm hella behind my weekly practices, which will all be made up. If we follow through with the whole plan, by the end of the 52 lessons, there's one helluva story in the offing.

On the plus side, guys, I'm 20K into my contemporary slasher and digging it. We'll see where we land in the end. I got a little feedback that my characters are unlikeable, but I've come up with a likeable one - not the one expected, but she's a beauty anyways. Didn't know I had a slasher in me, but there will be blood... and quite a bit of sex.
