I had ~2.7k.
I’m starting to think that I need to add a POV for the overarching villain just to give him a little more presence. On the other hand, he won’t have a reason to hate Caden until much later, so it might be okay for him to be a gnat for now. Other than that, the plot is working out well enough. Though what I’d originally intended as the end of act one, has become the middle of act two.
