Post-masquerade

I stayed up way, way too late last night writing. It was past two by the time I got to sleep, but I finished the masquerade scene. Tonight I've been working on its aftermath, but I need to step up the pace and not let it flag too much. I still have a lot of ground to cover before I'm done.

Trouble is, I really am in uncharted territory now. I know what needs to happen, but I'm still not sure how to arrange it so that all the characters are where they should be. The action is so complicated, with so many characters, that I'm seriously thinking about a flowchart.

It'll have to wait until tomorrow, though. I'm worn out and I've had a headache all afternoon. Time for bed, and in the morning I'll hit the Fourth of July bake sales with my mom and then come home to write until the fireworks start.
