Somebody remind me that in twelve months, I will actually like this book again.

Ye gods. This damned thing is now on its third plot, all of them subtly but importantly different. And I can't shake the feeling that if you x-rayed it, you'd be able to see the old plots shining through like a landscape under a painted-over canvas.

It's also hard because all this squishing and slurping means I can't feel the outline of the book in my head any more, so I have no idea if I've bitched up the pacing or the arc or whatever.


Identified Scenes to Add:: still only 10

Reason for stopping: done with the read-through and edit for content/continuity: not writing any new scenes tonight.

Tyop du jour: nothing of note, alas
