Just Before Errol’s Trial

I’ve revised the rest of chapter 10, and the first three scenes of chapter 11, right up to just Errol’s trial. Now I take a day off to teach my night class, and to percolate.

Errol’s trial has to be layered. I need to add 3 layers to what currently exists, so it will be a task.

Then, in the after math, I need to work in an attempted poisoning, and giving Stephan his mission for the next book. I’m thinking of saving Errol’s relationship complications for the next book, but I’m also trying to think of a way to save the scene that gives the book its name by using it in another context.

We are in the home stretch now. I have less than 70 pages to edit. Unfortunately they are the 70 pages that are the most difficult to rewrite.

I’ll see you all in a couple of days.
