The second part of a novel, that pesky bit between the inciting incident and the crisis and resolution, is always the toughest for me (and probably for most writers). I'm 33k into the first draft of A Stranger Path (working title) -- the second in my Gods of Eoroe series of mythology-based weird/dark fantasy (this one from Maya mythology) -- and am battling inertia. I probably have about a 30k struggle ahead of me until it gets better again. Each new novel I keep thinking this part will get easier. Not yet, apparently.
