When we commence to novelize, we are not as smart as we think we are.

Write it seven hundred times on the inside of your skull. It will save work later.

To wit: I am a restructuring fiend in this bit of book.

Boy, the rigorously alternating POVs (wolf, fighter-type, wolf, historian, wolf, fighter-type, wolf, historian) in the first draft of this book were a really stupid idea. Nice, Bear. Where did you get that particular bit of structural dumbass from?

This is much easier if you just let things happen chronologically, and tell them from the POV of the person who is most likely to notice them going on.

Well, live and learn.



When I went to bed last night, all the glitter balls were in the living room. When I woke up this morning, all the glitter balls were on my bedroom floor beside the bed.

Mebd was busy bringing me gifts while I slept.
