Inspiration did hit
But perversely not in any of the places I was hoping or expecting: I plotted out part 3 of Ars Draconis and then wrote a chunk of it. With this story, I knew the basic shape from the very start. It's just a matter of giving each little section an arc of its own, and figuring out how to show what I need to show. It'll be six parts total, I think. I have a pretty clear idea now of what happens in each one.
In this one: sword gets used in anger, in several senses.
