Started the second draft of Congregations of the Dead, the follow up to Blind Shadows. My co-author, James A. Moore, gave me the first crack at it. I got through about a third of the 300 plus page manuscript yesterday and so far I haven't had to do any major rewrites. Just the usual corrections, rewordings, and such that one expects. I will say that letting a MS sit for as long as we did this one allows you to come at the book with fresh eyes. I haven't peeked at it since we set it aside several months ago. I'm expecting more trouble toward the last third of the book as I remember thinking at the time that it was a bit choppy, but we'll see.
