I decided I earned a vacation after hitting 80k, so I took things light on Tuesday and took yesterday off completely. On Tuesday and today I created a matrix of which characters appear in which chapters in order to see how I could get some of the characters that I added recently introduced earlier in the book. I managed to rework a chapter that I was planning to throw away and use it to introduce an important character around chapter 13, which I think is early enough. I have plans to have the character mentioned again somewhere in the 20’s so that readers don’t forget about him when he becomes important again in the late 30’s.

Also, as you can see from the stats above, I worked through a bunch of issues on my to-do list (and generated some new ones, now that I’m looking at some of the structural aspects of the story).
