Words: 2500 (in the form of 75 minutes) revising “Pithea.” There are several scenes at the beginning of part 3, as Missy deals with a personal tragedy, that I’m realizing as I go through it now are all mixed up. They make much more sense in a different order. That’s what I spent over an hour working on tonight. Now Leahna tells Missy more about her friend Alexander, but not until after Missy’s had a bit of a meltdown and calms down again. Also, I’d left out any indications of the time of year, as it’s nearly winter at this point in the story, so I made Missy a little colder.
