I have started the twenty-first chapter of the fantasy book and my first skirmish has begun. This chapter depicts a skirmish because it is not an open battle or a siege battle, but a chaotic ambush and subsequent massacre. It will be man against beast and steel against magic. It will also foreshadow the outcome of the siege battle. I know it’s late, but writing this chapter is such an adrenaline rush and it is hard to stop writing.
