  1. WOW! YAYAY! CONGRATULATIONS! WELL DONE! HAPPY DANCE!

    It’s interesting your most common word is Marion. Is it written mostly from her point of view, even if third person?

  2. Yes, which is not at all the POV I originally had in mind. C’est la vie. Of course, the original idea also featured a plotline marginally more prominently, but at least getting lost in the forest isn’t the only thing that has happened this year. Although it has happened more than once.

  3. I seem to remember getting lost in the forest was a major part of the plot and a manifestation of the Secret Thing That Is Happening To Clorinda, so perhaps you won’t have *that* much rewriting-to-insert-plot to do?
