notes for free writing

I am sitting and trying to figure out my notes and what is left for the trajectory of Monte Stories. I still remember Tracy Daugherty telling me how the individual learns how to write a novel by doing and finding.

Here are the chapters I have left to free write:

Carlos tries to kill Pifanio after amputation of legs; or maybe before amputation of legs…

Jeri leaves and then returns after purchasing a house for Bruna and Lena and Lena fixing it up…

Jeri and Lena arguing over dogs Jeri purchases for Bruna…

Lucy Venudo watching Bruna after Lena no longer able to watch Bruna at Dundee cleaners…

Lena at Vicky’s checking up on Jeri; Lena worrying that he is cheating…

Bruna as young girl following Lena as she checks up on Jeri…

Jeri and Bruna visit Jeri’s brother and sister Milly and Charlie…

Bruna’s Hell when Bruna is 16…

Lena and Felipa fight over money for Carlos…

Carlos losing his teeth and Lena purchases his false teeth; he refuses to let his gums heal out of vanity…

Ending?: Carlos wheels himself over to bar…
