God help me. I've done it.
Thank you Scotty for doing the final proof. It actually gave me a chance to completely rewrite that sentence.
Now commencing 1st Phase: Nervous Wreck. It's not hard to see why so many writers become drinkers.
In truth I should be preparing the next query. I expect these first attempts to be "throw aways" as I get a handle on this.
I should also be writing the next book, but I can't decide whether to move into writing a sequel to Troubled_Waters (first instinct), or whether to move on to something else (advisable). I have some thoughts on the cult the villain headed up being good for a second story.
