Right. That was an … intense … scene to write.
There’s still work to do to make it intense for the reader, of course. Right now I’m coming down off the writer-rush of having gotten the sense of the thing down on paper, but writer-intensity is only a first step. It’s fine and well for the writer to feel things, after all, but that does no good if those things aren’t on the page. So lots of work still to do.
But first, time to step back a bit. Catch my breath. Get a bit of perspective. Think about what comes next.
And maybe blow off steam by running from zombies.
