I love spring, love cocooning with my WIP.

I just read the second first draft of F&M, after cooling time to work on world building and to grade VC packets, and I've now keyed in the initial changes--many tweaked for consistency.

This past sweep, I fiddled excessively with names, ethnicities, and hometowns. Likewise, I decided one character conflict just wasn't necessary--snip! And of course once snipped, the thread must be pulled out of the whole.

The good news is that it isn't totally wretched. Don't get me wrong. It is partially wretched--quite a lot actually--but I can see the potential in it.

I have a foundation.

Cheers to UK!
