My second novel isn't done yet- I'm not all that worried, I slowed way down after
NaNo last year, too.

A far as rewriting the last book I finished... Frankly I haven't gotten much
work done. At all. Probably only about eighteen pages, which means around a hundred
more to go.

The past two days, though, I've been working out a way the end of my book could have
gone differently. Right now it's a tragedy, you see, but I was looking at some a plot
outline I had last year. 

I was juggling outlining notebooks while writing Noble Intentions, and eventually
this one fell out of disuse because it was practically never on hand when I had to
make notes. All it had was the plot outline, and I sort of... Overestimated my
memory. I slipped up in a big way, and of course it still worked out fine, the same
loose ends wound up resolved, but it made me realize that my first plan wasn't

So that's the update. I'm thinking of completely changing the plot, and making the
ending happy. Maybe I'll keep the original chapter, maybe I won't. That's the joy of
rewrites, right?

As a side note, thanks to Lunasan, for reminding how much can change in two chapters.
