Yay! My protagonist got his first kill in the candy bar scene. In fact, he's now had two kills (about bloody time too) and that really cool idea I had last night is about to enter stage left.
I can see this mammoth (at least for me) scene wrapping up in about a thousand words or so.
By and large it is the longest scene in the book, but I need to resist the urge (as ever) to go back and look at this part of the novel's structure.
It's quite possible this scene can be condensed and the chapter breaks juggled around a bit so it isn't spread over the current 3 chapters but I really need to look at things like that at the end during revision time.
