What happens next? About everything. We’ve laid all the pipe, and have gotten a sense of the characters and plot. The only character who remained as planned was Tony. The rest of them went in interesting directions, Nonna in particular. I need to make sure I weave plot threads all the way through the story in both directions, and firm up sketchier scenes and subplots with important details and research. The revision will be a serious firming, with a conscious injection of edgy yet whimsical humor (oh my God! jacket coooppppyyyyyy!!!)

I expect an overall expansion of the wordage. How much we shall see.

The salient detail, however, is that we are done 12 days ahead of time in the month of the broken arm. Go me.

Hope you are all flourishing out there in writer land. It always feels good to get to this point. My rough drafts are really so crap usually. Now we can pull back and focus.
