Going from one plot point to another...:

 1 Dr Furball, Thu, 4th Nov '10 12:11:04 PM from All Along the Watchtower Relationship Status: Dancing with myself
So, I mapped out my story by making a web showing each major event ("steals sword", "arrives at castle", ect) in it, so I know where to go.

But I realize now that I have some trouble getting from one event to the next. Like right now, I have a naval battle occurring, and I know how I want it to end. I want to want to link the finish to the beginning of the battle, but don't wanna resort to padding.

Any advice?

Eye'm the cutest!
Show the battle in its entirety.

Act it out, preferably with a friend. That's what I do when I'm stuck on a scene.
If I'm asking for advice on a story idea, don't tell me it can't be done.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
