mysteriousparis

Still on track

Yes, I entered more edits in Mysterious Paris. I completed chapter 3. And chapter 4 includes one of the new Jardin excerpts. What fun!

Sadly, while I'm writing out this version, I keep thinking of alternate ways to tell the story. Instead of starting when she's just lost yet another job and buys the fateful lottery ticket, what if I start with two scenes that show her downhill post-graduation spiral:
- Discovering long-time college sweetheart is engaged to another woman(currently a flashboack in MP)
- The actual scene where she's fired (instead of the aftermath scene)

For now, I'll just keep heading in my current direction (typing in edits), but I'll keep this possibility in mind.
