What do you read, my lord?

Mexico hath been brought to the book binder, a safe place and much less perilous than my bedroom.


I'm sure I will make changes. But upon rereading I felt good about a number of areas, most especially:

The Emotional Scenes.

I was quite terrified to write such beasts. I could already see the flood of tears, the gasps for air, the cries of "No!" ripping the night -- all the overwrought outbursts of grief.

Luckily, I realized that my characters were as afraid of experiencing emotion as I was to write it for them.

We went from there.
