Line Edits of Anneka -- Day Two

Worked through the real simple word changes up to page 267.

Solved two or three of the little questions.
Did some work on two of the big clarify-what's-going-on problems.


I still don't know what I'm going to call Anneka. It's hard to think of another name.


  1. I can imagine. Lord only knows what I would do if, in a few years, they told me I had to pick a new name for my son. *g* It's kind of the same thing.

  2. I've told other folks they should write their story with the characters named, y'know ... their names.

    Because when you're writing, you need the character to be alive and his name brings him alive.

    Then at the end, says I, you just do a universal 'search and replace' and you rename Thadeus. You call him George of Jeeves or Hiram Geeber III.

    But it isn't that easy when you're doing it.
    Ah, the things one does discover.
