This weekend I read an article in Realms of Fantasy (how did I purchase the October 2007 issue in August) about the orphan as archetype, when I was struck by an idea for Mysterious Paris that ups the conflict and stakes - and I hope will eliminate the need for some of the less exciting bits.

I already wrote a new draft of one of the scenes (last scene of the first chapter), but now I'll have to work through how it plays out in the rest of the book! I also rewrote a couple of scenes (but not so drastically) early on, to make the attraction a little stronger at the start. This change also means scenes will play out differently later on.
