The end of Aberrations is farther away than the last time I posted. I wrote a couple of great chapters, but the next day realized they didn't work. Sigh. I have to somehow get the MC well into her role as advisor to the lords of the province, in as few words as possible, before her brother comes back and stirs the pot until it boils over.

While I am working things out, the book I deserted to write this one, jabs at my mind. It had gone off track somehow, and I didn't know how to fix it. I thought by the time I could get back to it, I'd have it all figured out, but I don't.
