About last night– Hey, that would make a good title for a movie or a book, yeah?
Anyway, as I said I would do, last night I began plotting out Part Six. Well, not actually plotting it out: that requires setting up the scenes for what’s to come in the chapters. But I’m getting there and I expect this week to see me finishing out the plotting, because these characters aren’t gonna plot this sucker out by themselves.
What do I have, then? Well, for Part Six I’ve got this:
Part Six is Our Winter of Discontent and this is leading the kids into the last couple of months of school before Salem shuts down and 2013 becomes one with the history books. So things are gonna start getting a little sticky for the kids and probably get a little worse as time goes by.
First up we have Public Visions and as I indicated, deals with Annie and Kerry doing a class exercise with Deanna and having a vision–oh, should I have said Spoilers? Like you didn’t know that would happen. Well, it’s coming next and it’ll be fun.
Then there’s Personal Projections. What’s that? It’s Annie-centric and all I can say is that she decides to do something she was told not to do, but you know Annie, right? It’s also gonna be interesting.
Third up is Recruitment Night and this begins the creation of a derby league in Salem. Annie’s off to become Fresh Meat and not turn into Rotten Meat like me, since I’ve been uncertified for more than six months. My guess it’s quite likely that before you know it, she’s gonna be hittin’ bitches in the wall.
And last is Racing Rudeness and hell, we know what that means. I mean, it’s about time Kerry got into a wreck, don’t you know, and now’s the time to lay that on him. Expect a certain soul mate to be pissed, too.
So that’s Part Six–
But wait! There’s more!
Yes, I decided I’d lay out Part Seven as well because, well, I already had part of it laid out. What’s that you say, Cassidy? Yep, I did. Because I’ve showed it to you before.
Part Seven is titled Travelogues and, as you might guess, it deals with traveling and the aftermath. Like–
The first chapters is Yule in Pamporovo and if you don’t know what that’s about, you be trippin’. Annie goes home for Yule and she’s got company, ’cause Kerry is gonna stay with the Family Kirilovi. Kerry gets to see how Annie lives as well as having plenty of time to get to know his future in-laws. Which is probably not a bad idea since he’ll likely see more of them than his family.
The next two chapters are Weekend with the Girls and The Polar Express. The first is Annie going off with Helena to do some Guardian stuff while the second is Kerry going off with Emma to fly and freeze his butt. If I haven’t made it clear up to now, both of these happen at the same time, so there won’t be scenes of Annie mopping around Salem wondering where Kerry’s at. Which is for the best because who really wants to see that?
And last is Post Mortums, which deals with the aftermath of both excursions–sort of. Kind of. Maybe. Things will happens that require discussion, so this is the time for that to happen. And they will.
There you have it: the next few–or many–months of writing. And what comes after that?
I guess I’ll have to plot it out.
