I’ve been writing scenes I’m not really sure about for the last couple of days, but every so often I get a line that clicks another chunk of plot into place. So I don’t want to totally write them off, but they’re mainly mediocre, with a very few redeeming features. In comparison to the rest of my stuff, that is. We’re not going to talk about how good they are in reference to actually good work 😀

And I keep trying to find ways for certain people not to die. *cries* I won’t tell you who they are, because I might find a way, and also I want it to be a shock if any of you end up reading Merchant’s Daughter. I just need some casualties! And I don’t want them to be pure “expendables.”

Darn, darn, darn. *frowns*

You see, I’ve never actually killed anyone yet, so it’s a new thing.

Anyhow, in other news, Ritter Sebastian has arrived, I’ve married Jana off, and Adelheid has turned out to be “such a man!” 😀 I’m glad. I was worried about her for a while, and now I like her again. Marching through the castle, terrorizing all the men. 😛

Wow, it has been a day of non-related fragments, now that I look at the stats. 😀
I did a bunch of odds and ends scenes today. I was cringing at them, and saying to myself, “I hate my mind!” But then I had a chance remark from Margerete, and I realized that I wasn’t including a proper villain, and now I’m fired up, a bit, about the story. *dances* 
My dashboard keeps collecting notes like “Intro the healer/Get out now, He’ll kill you/Allude to Hugh.” and “Herr Sebastian comes to Visit, something Dastardly. Cheerful!”
Man, I just KEEP introducing people, though. (including Jana, who was generic until she opened her mouth. See title, above.) And half of them are going to die, I know, so I have to introduce even more characters to take up the slack afterwards. I think I see a Character related dare around here somewhere.
