I didn’t work on the comic last night, and instead stepped back and thought about how I wanted to structure the dialogue for the rest of the chapter. Besides filling in some of the blanks for the conversation between Alex and Richard (and Isabella), I also decided that there will be a separate dialogue between Isabella and Richard after Alex has left. If I do this, it will allow me to flesh out both characters more and discuss some of the other side issues that are involved in the story. At the very least, figuring this out has made me less anxious about the rest of the chapter. However, I still need to write up the dialogue to pull it all together.
