Aargh. Another day of confusion and crisis. Realized Charlie's death can't open the book, since that misdirects to this being a book about Charlie. So I worried it and worried it and then I decided: Anna's playing Falcon Ridge, she can't sleep, she goes back to Hart in the night (driving her converted yellow-schoolbus tourbus!) ...
... and Voila!
So I managed after much tsuris 364 words setting that up. One more day of teeth-pulling, but once again I have staved off panic by sticking through it.
Does this ever ever get easier?
