I'm revising chapter 6. It's one of my least favorite chapters and I'm not exactly sure why. With so much music going on, it should be one of my favorites, but it's not. Something's missing. There are plenty of details and lots of action toward the end. Perhaps it simply isn't polished enough to hold my interest. Unlike some of the earlier chapters that have been revised to exhaustion, this chapter still feels a bit half-baked and rough. Melinda, Julia's standpartner, could be used more. Also, the atmosphere could be creepier. I'll have to dig a little deeper with this chapter and bring out what I hope will be a tight series of fast-moving scenes.
