I plowed forward anyway, on two transitions, trying to work in some of the character issues while setting up action scenes. Action scenes on which I am minorly stuck. If that thing some call inspiration doesn't strike today, then I shall, again, go with perspiration and put something down, anything, so I can get through to the final scenes that resolve character stuff. If the action scene sucks, I can fix it later.
I have a three day weekend. This is totally doable. Just got to get my head in the right place.
Maybe seeing filomancer today will shake something loose.
