I'm still not sure what to do about chapter 6. It needs to be cut down or cut in two. However, if I cut it in two, it throws off the rhythm of the whole book. For almost all of the novel I'm alternating POVs each chapter: Jacob, Jael and then Jacob again. If I break Chapter 6 in two, I mess up that flow one way or another. Troubling. Or maybe I just don't want to go through all the work of re-writing each chapter from the other person's POV (though actaully, if I had a LOT more time, I would mind writing each scene from each person's POV. It actually might be interesting but I want this 'done' by Oct 25).
Still, I'm encouraged. I know the beginning needs work but on the whole, I'm happy with it.
