Ha! Take that year-long-writers-block. After 4 rewrites, 600 words of scrapped text and a spaceship (you’ll find out later), not least of which over a year of time, Chapter 9 is finally done. The direction we went in in the end was the one I had originally planned at first before going wildly off in a new direction that seemed to fit far better and involve far less of Nick and Inanna arguing for half a chapter. The title of the chapter- The first aftermath, is perhaps a bit generic but it describes a bit more than first glance and will definitely make a lot more sense when we get the the second aftermath.
