I feel more OKAY! than WHEW! about my last chapter. It helps that we’re getting close to the end. And it’s fun introducing an interesting character. This is the Originator of our cult, a creepy charismatic Kenneth Copeland type. Whom these folks see as, well, God.
And when God shows up in person (I can say that, right? Old Testament is a voice and a burning bush but New Testament is a person) there are places to go. Extreme reactions from folks are fun to depict. The Originator provokes fainting, ranting, adoration, dead silence ... and he has a cigar-smoking, eye-on-the-profits, short-guy-in-lifts side to him too.
And he represents the beginning of the end. When God makes an entrance, the big scene can’t be far away.
