Michelangelo is a very nervous boy. It's interesting writing his POV, because it's a constant exercise in Considering The Worst Case Scenario.

frex:

"We have balconies," Elena said. "I think you'll be sufficiently safe from abduction there. And you'll get to see at least some of the proceedings."

Kusanagi-Jones bit his lip. Abductions were one thing. He was worried about snipers.


Revising continues. The b*%k has grown to 459 pages, and there's still work to be done: I'm on page 205. This is what you might call a stately process.

I need to figure out what this scene does to justify its inclusion in the narrative. Other than making my editor happy, I mean....

...and figure out how to do some of the thematic stuff I could use it for without resorting to the S.H. Lawrence Hammer o'Symbolism.

Reminds me of a conversation in High School english class. There was a gentleman who always insisted on sitting with his back to the door.

When he was given grief about being paranoid, I pointed out that he was in front of a window and vulnerable to a sniper at the Cumberland Farms across the street.

It would be more funny if the year after I graduated, a student hadn't come in with a shotgun and held a class hostage until the police killed him.

I hated High School.
High school is hell. But man, that's especially hellish.
