That’s what it feels like, when you’ve written the first twenty chapters…and Chapter 23! The trick now is to bridge the gap. I know where the story’s going to end up so it won’t be that hard to write Chapter 24. The genre is technically a “romance” and it has to have HEA, which is “happily ever after.”
And it will. I mostly know how it’s going to get there but there are quite a few loose ends to tie up in the two missing chapters.
Years after her Olympic debacle, disgraced former Three-Day Event rider, Asha Hamilton, has made a comfortable life for herself in New England (which is detailed in the first twenty chapters). But this is the Riverwood series, set in Tennessee, and therein lies the problem.
I laid some groundwork in Books 1, Fool Me Once, and Book 2, A Bitter Wind Blows, by introducing Asha and giving her some connections to Tennessee so the plot of Book 3, Signs of Life, would be plausible.
