So, another 2800 words today and the story is starting to look like it might reach some sort of conclusion. Our hero remains trapped, he and his men have no way out and they’ve also ended up with a lot more responsibility than they anticipated.
One of the options he has might well result in the mother of all explosions, if he’s not careful.
Can they be rescued anyway, before they are overwhelmed and if so, will they all get out in one piece?
The target for the whole thing is about 75k words and we’re now at 58k. It really needs to be done and dusted well before the end of the month and that looks pretty likely. Early mornings seem to be the way forward.
