Not much else to report on the writing front. I think this is solid material that won't need to be cut much (though there is one sequence that might need to be trimmed down a hair--I'll have to look at it later, and get my wife to look at it, to know for sure). At this point I've only got one smallish scene left to write, and then I'll be done with Chapter 6 at last. That's exciting for me, because chapters 5 and 6 are likely to have been the two hardest chapters for me to write in the whole book, and I'll be past that hump. Those were both transitional chapters of a sort, and that can be wicked hard to do correctly early in a book. I'm sure I'll have hard spots later on in, but I'll already have a lot more material established with the characters, setting, etc, when I get to those. Past experience tells me that that helps a lot.
