The trick, of course, is figuring out what Abby Irene's evil master plan is so I can write the scenes where it's important, because those are the ones that are missing, now.
Still. I shall apply my new motto as a writer, which is this: Think about what you are doing, rather than how you are doing it.
Because after many years of thinking about how I am doing things, that process is not longer serving me, and I need a new one now. Which, apparently, means learning to live with the unconscious competence thing.
Well, you never learn to write novels. You only learn to write this novel.
