Had a glorious three-hour lunch with AL at Houston's at Anderson and Burnet this afternoon. She's fantastic. I can hardly wait to read her upcoming YA. She shared part of it at WF, and I was wowed. Plus, you know, she looks quite fetching in pinstripes.
Also continued rewriting the tall tale. It now has a statement of mythology, and...that is new why? Ditto on clarifying the emotional stakes.
