I am brave

No, not me. That's the working title of a new short story I'm working on.

The First Line has an awesome first line for the winter issue (November deadline):
It was her silent affirmations that kept her from going completely insane.

I couldn't come up with story ideas, and it was bubbling in my subconscious, when I realized that I had a story about Manon before Mysterious Paris takes place. For the past few days I've been thinking bits of the story, and this evening I finally sat down and wrote a chunk. I can tell I'll have to make multiple passes to layer it up properly, but it's a start. I'm also learning more about Manon, which can only help with Mysterious Paris.

That, is an incredible first line.

And I love the process you are going through with your characters.
