This, folks, is why we meet with other writers face-to-face.
I have new villain motivation that actually makes actual sense.
I have a hero who's about to go on a murderous rampage. He may not come out of this whole, mentally, on the other side. He's already suffering from PTSD for more than one reason
I have a timeline.
I have a surgical scene that's actually kind of pivotal and makes the injection of this stuff make more sense than it did before.
I also found out today that adrenaline and epinephrine are the same thing. That thing I said the other day about doing research for one line? Yeah, that.
I have a doctor who kind of swears like a sailor. I like him.
And, yeah, the n-word is beginning to look like more and more of a possibility here. I may finally have my Big Idea. Don't say it too loudly, though; you'll scare it away.
I LOVE THIS STORY.
