I’ve spent most of the morning reviewing episode six and seven, and trying to convince myself that I’m not in need of an episode eight.
It started when I asked myself what the driving point was for episode seven, and when I settled on what I thought it was, that led me to a bit of a different ending point than I had envisioned, which I interpret as saying I need more episodes.
The intention was that episode seven would bring us to a bit of an end-point, that the base story would be complete. It’s a fantasy world, though. So I suppose it could continue on forever. But the original concept was to be done in seven, so this thought pattern leaves me feeling a little cranky. Not that it should matter, but it does. How could I have been wrong?
Now, being the author, I get the final say, here. I could probably still make it happen in seven. But let’s not get too hasty. The characters and I do this thing where we figure things out in some strange fit of negotiation that always seems to work out, but can leave me wondering if I’m actually sane at times.
I guess we’ll just review it tomorrow and see where it comes out, eh?
