I’m enjoying this story, but if it weren’t JuNoWriMo, I’d be heavily editing already. I’m 7k+ words in, and I’m still in Chapter 1. And I also haven’t even gotten Body #2 onscreen yet. I know there’s no hard and fast rule about when/how that kind of thing is “supposed to” happen, but it still seems to me like I’m taking WAY too much time about it.

Building realistic suspense is hard, y’all.
