It’s a horror-fantasy. I’ve borrowed from classical form genre beats to put together what should be an interesting story for modern readers.
But the second and third act are challenging me: While the outlines for each are short, they must provide a good setup for what soon follows; and both must be interesting in their own right; and more than halfway through a draft of Act II, I’ve uncovered holes earlier in the work. Despite an outline.
Time to get back to the keyboard.
