...Now, I have to start writing "Chatoyant."
Of course, while I know exactly what structural purposes it must accomplish, I have no idea what it's about. Except vampires and authoresses in Boston in not-1903. So I have to figure out what the story is that will support the character arcs I need, and get everybody in position for "Lumiere."
I am contemplating bringing in another vampire. Somebody please explain to me why this is a bad idea.
Perhaps I will go juggle for a while longer and see if it sorts itself.
