Three good (writery) things:
1. My characters are speaking to me and it seems that I’ve worked out their motivations at long last. Probably. It took some exploration on my part to find out what worked and what didn’t.
2. I’ve discovered that handing even nerfed wish-grants to characters is handing them too much power, at least if they’re smart. Which my protags are, much to my combined delight and dismay.
3. And so to bed. Will do better tomorrow, when I get other things under my belt….
