Day 28 (March 20)

Cool and wet again.

Managed to tidy up one of the problematic early chapters in Part One (at one stage it was Chapter One). The action takes place in Mackay, a large town on the Queensland coast, around one thousand kilometres north of Brisbane.

The major dissonance was solved by re-jigging the beginning of this chapter to draw attention to the gap of four years since the last action, given that the now preceding chapters were taken forward and into the present to avoid back-story flashbacks included in later chapters. Now I need to be conscious of eliminating repeat content and checking that tenses are consistent with the new structural approach. Two more awkward chapters to deal with and it should be easier after that.

Library was comfortable and quiet for working most of the time today.

Good work environment
