I finally made the decision that chapter 35, originally intended to be the entire football game, needs to be two chapters. When pre-game and the first half hit 8,000 words, my decision was pretty automatic.
Chapter 35 is in the final polishing (which means it has dropped below 8k words!) and will be off to my team shortly. Look for it in about a week or so. Just some light summer reading.
For those worried that the football game would be just… Well, just… Yeah. Don’t worry. Not only do you not need to understand American Football, you don’t even need to like it. The chapter focuses on the world in front of Luis’s eyes and Becca’s feelings from the stands. Hint, she’s sitting next to Rosalee!
So, coming soon, chapter 35. Not a summer rerun.
