The chapters are each in their own state of disrepair, but the sequencing is done. Characters are being developed. Plot is on the table. The setting is set. Instead of moving forward with dinner, I’m going to make sure the serving spoons are properly placed in their tureens, the meat is partly carved, and the wine is poured.
I have an editor picked. A foodie, if you like. I need to give these first five chapters a culinary preparation. Planning to send this meal off around the 21st/22nd for copyedit, etc.
