The book shrank!

Chapter twenty five is done! But something happened as I was writing it. It absorbed some of the next chapter. That's what happens sometimes for me, the story just takes over and goes where it wants. I ended up borrowing from the next chapter, so I moved the remaining half of that chapter into the following chapter twenty six (it was twenty seven), then I rearranged chapter twenty six's layout.

If that didn't make any sense to you, rest assured, it makes sense to me. I have my chapters layed out in a brief outline form which helps me keep my ideas organized, so when things like this happen I just readjust and continue on.

So now it looks like the book will be about twenty nine chapters long! Of course that could change, like i said, sometimes the story takes over......

I'm looking forward to this one, the first book was a nice read. You have a really good style of writing.
