Words: 925 revising “Adventures in Pithea.” I’m still unsure how to incorporate one element that is crucial to the current scene. I don’t know if I should make the smart guy of the group inexplicably able to figure out how to use technology he’s not familiar with (use it in a minor way, mind you, but still, it seems a bit of a leap), or place a prop in the story that would be easy for them to figure out how to use, but seems too convenient (and would be awkward to introduce smoothly). I thought I’d figured it out. Or at least I think I remember thinking I’d figured it out. But now I’m back to not knowing what to do.
