Okay, I actually got all the way through to THE END this time. The big hold up today was that I realized that the "Detectives sit around and tie up all the loose ends" scene was now so far out of whack with the rest of the book, it was better to just toss it all out, and write it anew.
I'll need to do some character and texture passes, but that can happen with proofing. For now I am done done done.
And since the opera ain't over 'til the Miss Piggy sings ... and here she is!
I'll post my deconstruction of the process that took so long tomorrow morning with the ROW80 dare update post.
See you in the funny papers!
