Just because you feel guilty is no reason your kids should make you clean up after them, but I know that's easier said than done.

LOL! That was sort of shorthand. It's more that in an ordinary evening I'd be there to help with a lot of stuff, including clean up and since I'm not there, it kind of gets out of hand and I feel I have to allow for that somewhat. Of course they need to clean up, but they also need to make dinner, do homework, and all of their regular evening routine that other than every other Wednesday night I do with them.

I really do think the chapter has a natural breaking place. But I'm just a beta. I give my opinion and of course you decide.

You could well be right. Chapters feel like single arcs to me and bisecting them is often a disturbing thought. The irrational reason is also that I've decided the book is 30 chapters and I seem to be under the strange misapprehension that if it becomes 31 now, it will take longer.

I have a cold; maybe my brains are clouded. Argghhh, I know the Met has no free night. I researched it after I wrote it and I was so annoyed, I didn't change it yet. I use the metaphor based on the inaccuracy all through the next paragraph. *sigh*.

Hmm, "scuddering clouds" shows up all over the place in a google search for the phrase, but a definition search yields no results. It's a mass delusion. "Scudding" seems to be the real word, but the profusion of "scudderings" bears more examination.

Great beta comments, thanks. I have to think carefully about the misspellings in the chat room. It bugs you (and me) because we're editors but it's also true.

On the Met - maybe it will have a free night in the not-so-distant future.

I think if you put in enough chat speak it will look authentic even without typos.
