This is the second chapter I’ve had to print out, cut almost line-by-line, and tape back together to get any sort of flow going. I didn’t actually piece it together on the door, but it’s hanging there now and I might leave it for the time being as a sort of trophy. Victory over a stubborn chapter!
For some reason, I think a little bit better visually and I find this helps. Seeing the small amount of words on the computer screen doesn’t always work for me (especially in my blind-person font size). I feel the need to have ALL the pieces visible to find their placement.
It took a couple hours this afternoon to work things through and then another couple for finishing touches after dinner this evening. I posted the chapter on ff.net and AO3 and have been stalking my comments ever since. I’m all squee about this chapter, but hardly anyone is squeeing with me just yet! I can’t wait!!! 😛
