i might be drunk but i ain't dumb.

It must be an epic fantasy, because I am suffering POV inflation. But there are no existing POV characters present for this plot-necessary scene.

Of course, the existence of this scene and the POV character in it implies an interesting narrative thread that I am going to have to go back and put in.

And this is why my second drafts are always fifteen percent longer than my rough drafts.

Just one more POV won't kill ya. It's when you start adding 3 or more that the POV creep kicks in...
Hee. Well, there were several new POVs last book. For the same reason--"Shit, nobody here whose POV I can use!"

So I'm up a bunch.

But nowhere near some people. ;-)
As long as you're not adding extra books (like fidelioscabinet says below), it's all good.
