Psssst – I broke 30,000 words on She Whom I Love this afternoon. I normally only put updates and stuff over on my tumblr for those who are actually interested in the process and squeeing with me, but I’m excited by this book. I already ‘know’ Sophie from her appearance in Rite of Summer, but figuring out who Meg and James are has been a long process – and I’m not done yet. But yes! About a third of the way through, and I’m super-excited.
My biggest surprise so far: ‘Three-fingered Jack’ from my ‘useful incidental characters’ list is no longer a pickpocket; he’s named himself props master at the Haymarket instead. When they come out of the gate like that, who am I to argue?
