I thought I had ended The Shade Of The Moon last Tuesday (or was it Wednesday- I don't remember, but it was one of those days that started with last), and then I was going to Washington DC (I did, and I have the pictures to prove it), and then I was going to spring clean my apartment.
Instead, I spent much of yesterday sleeping.
Then at 3:49 AM, my smoke detector started beeping, which forced me to bring my ladder in from the outside storage closet. At which point, it stopped beeping. Since I'm still alive, I have a feeling it was a problem with the detector, not any smoke.
It took me an hour or so to fall back asleep, and I'm not sure when I had this thought- either then, or when I woke up, but I think it was then because I'm pretty sure when I woke up I had to recreate it.
What it is is a huge plot twist and approximately another 80 pages, starting, with just the removal of a sentence or two, at the exact moment where I thought the book ended.
So here's my plan. I'm going to visit my mother, and buy groceries, and at least do a little bit of Clean Out The Closet. Then I'm going to call Princess Summerfallwinterspring and test the idea out on her. If she likes it, and almost more to the point, if she can figure out how to resolve the brand new situation I created thanks to the smoke detector, I'll go back to writing, something I swore I would never do again.
I promise to keep you posted and show you the photographs. Ideally with paragraphs!
