It seems about as hard to gear DOWN from writing as it does to gear UP. I did a fair bit of store work today, I guess, but I couldn’t stay away from my story. Shann has become *Mark of Repentance* — we’ll see how long that lasts for a working title. I also tweaked the outline some more. Now it’s at 62 scenes and is tighter in a couple of spots that needed it. (Not that I can remember yet what brainwave I had after lights out the other night.) More attention to pacing will doubtless still be a good thing. I’ve also updated the WIP link on the sidebar in case you’re interested.
