Morning battle ground: couldn't sleep since 5 again, so I got back to work and figured out (FINALLY) the plotting diagram that is easy and can expand and contract. And it looks like a boob. Because a boob is everything. It's the universe.
Anyway. It's like a pool of dark water. It's coming from the Hero's Journey's circle, and it's now clear in my head, like a darkness you have to dive into. At least my books fit this description. I'll try to summarize this into another post.
What a fun ride.
