Chapter 2 is sagging

2

May 19, 2008 by Tracey S. Rosenberg

Boy it’s tough to keep up the tension when everyone is waiting for something to happen. At least they can complain to each other that things aren’t happening. Which means I’m getting lots of practice battling the old ‘not every sentence needs a tag’ problem, she said hopefully. (That was one of my few annoyances with one of the Stephenie Meyer books – at one point there were five in a row.)

Meanwhile, a bit of advice: don’t research war before bedtime unless you’re aiming for really disturbing dreams. I’ve had nothing (yet) that requires either therapy or trepanning, but I’m going to start keeping a Georgette Heyer novel by the side of the bed. I’ve always been fond of dreams that seem to open a door into the past, but waking up to realize that my dream alter-ego just hugged a senior Nazi is not the best use of REM sleep. *shudder*

    Eurgh.

    My last really bad dream involved bad things happening to baby kittens, so I sympathise. Took me a while to get over that one.
