Writing, NaNoWriMo, Etc

I have been working like mad to finish my novel. It's not done yet. But I'm over halfway done. Starting Thursday, I will be participating in NaNoWriMo - my plan is to work on my current novel in the mornings and work on the prequel in the afternoons. I will only be tracking my word count for the prequel, but I'm pretty sure this will be do-able. It's my first year ever trying, so we'll see what happens.

I am feeling somewhat accomplished for getting all of my new chapters finished tonight. (This morning, really.) For some reason I feel like sharing my chapter titles. Some will make no sense at all, but I like them currently. They are subject to change without notice, of course. And chapters 16-22 aren't written yet, so those titles are definitely fluid, as well as whether or not they'll need to be broken up into smaller chunks after I get them written. And we won't even talk about revising yet... Anyway, here's what my mushy brain came up with.
