Well, I did write a bit after my last post, continuing on where I'd stopped as if I'd written everything as if what I want to do for the revision has been put into my first draft. I may try to divide it, but I need to see what I've got going and if it'll work in one novel. I figure I'm going to use Velara as the focus and kill her, make her the central . . . motivation for what's done in the novel. Not the "Velara would do this" kind of motivation, but the kind of motivation where she's touched and changed people and they do things because they feel it's now right.

I'm looking forward to writing this. Unfortunately, I'm bogged down in a job full of long hours. whee
