Update Required By Law
I wrote ten pages in the Angel Book tonight, after stepping back a bit to let the plot develop further. I'm glad I did, because I discovered things I otherwise wouldn't have; I love these quiet scenes, mostly dialogue, that on the surface appear very ordinary, but contain within the words of each speaker as much action and drama as any ridiculous action scene. The mental/spiritual tug of war between the main characters just got a lot uglier, and it helps that the huge turning point I was on the verge of is delayed, because now there's much more tension and drama. The book is up to 204 pages.
