i've expanded chapters 2 into three total chapters and edited some of chapter 1
this is good due to the fact that the main plot issue is going on at this point and you need to know the character a little better to understand what he is trying to do at this point.
we needed to know him a little better as readers... basically.
i am now at 18,554 words in the book.
the book is "by the gates of the garden of eden" and i am pretty sure you will like it.
my wrist hurts. i'm gonna call typing done for the day.
