As do my notes. I know the first few scenes and have figured out some of what happens when the magician returns home. So far the major beats of the novel are:
Intro: the characters find out about the town of Sunny Creek and that no one seems to know it exists.
Travel: small beats/pieces where I get to establish what each character does and how they do it. Functionally a lot like the short stories, but with less need to repeat certain information with each piece.
Sunny Creek: They reach the town, the ward on it bounces them off -- complete with curse.
Magician's Family: Scenes with his family and the town, dangers for him in returning to it and so forth.
Charlie's Family: What happens when Charlie ends up back home. What happens to a city when a god-eater leaves it? While the magician's section is more about dealing with the past he ran from, hers is about realizing the present she created.
Sunny Creek (2): They return and Deal With the rogue town. This will, ideally, be the last half of the novel.
End beat: Charlie probably heads off to do her Own Thing for a time. Not sure what else happens.
Most of this is vaguely plotted in my head, and some sections are more detailed than others. I write out a certain amount of plot -- including notes to myself and background bits -- but a lot of the story is left to develop on page from my vague ideas. It's pretty much akin to pantsing with suspenders, really.
EX: the term 'Cone and Grave' was made up for one of the stories. I had no idea what it meant at all and it is now a major plot point for the novel and series overall.
On the major plus(?) column, I do know all the main characters rather well as they've not lived in my head for months. Technically the magician has been in it since ~2007, waiting for his story to be continued. This will make some things easier in terms of what the characters do and how they react to events, but also limit their reaction(s) more than if I was making them up more on the fly in terms of personality and history.
The other big plus of this is that I get to visit their families and show the impact of them on their lives, which IS huge. Every novel I write is, at the core of it, about family -- the one you're born to, not 'the one you choose' and other such statements. It shall be great fun to explore facets of the characters the readers have never seen before and tease out stuff I've barely hinted at.
IS IT NOVEMBER YET?!
