A Monday Spent Writing

I worked more on Boy from the Sea today, but I'm not happy with what I've written. I wanted to give a better picture of the overall situation--explain why Garedin is living in this back of beyond place, what's the deal with Azrin, etc. But what I've written...I'm almost feeling as if I still need to throw in the shipwreck pretty quickly, just to keep the first chapter from getting bogged down in the backstory.

I did make a change. I went with historical English practice, circa the Tudor era, so I now have a baronial couple being Garedin's watchdogs rather than his servants. I have to find ways for the images of the situation in my head to make logical sense--or else decide how to change them.
