Sometimes, the must just goes crazy.
As she did in the first draft of Trudi 5.
For some reason - an over-heating of the brain, perhaps - she prompted my characters to go where they should not, at least not yet, if ever.
I wasn't happy, but rather than rip the thing to shreds at once, I've sat on it for a month or so to see how I feel about it.
It was a mistake.
Thus, once I have the time for writing again, Trudi 5 will be re-written with me in control, not my characters.
They have been given 500 lines each in the meantime.
