Several ideas to edit the story hit me on the drive into the office this morning. Each thought was triggered by techniques in the Think Sideways class, and I haven't even applied the techniques intentionally yet, this is my brain/muse putting all this together on the back burner of my consciousness. Loving it, loving the story, and I can't to see how it's really going to end.
It just might take a while to get to, since I've got the family visit, the birthday party, and the vacation to deal with. And that trip to NY I've been hoping for may happen in early December, so... I need to hang onto these thoughts and hope I don't lose the feel for it before then.
