6/22: 559 words. I wrote my first chase scene over the last couple of days. It was more difficult than I had expected to balance (1) moving the scene forward with a sense of urgency and anticipation while (2) adequately describing everything that’s occurring.

This scene may take several rounds of edits to get right. Then it will be up to the reader to decide whether I’ve been successful.

Don't miss anything about projects I'm working on, new books you should be looking for, and articles about the craft and business of writing. I'll also give you the first three chapters of my novel, Vulcan Rising.
