I'm revising chapter 3 today. There are two scenes I'll overhaul. I can probably condense Julia and Audrey's arrival at Audrey's house and the ice cream paragraphs by turning some of the unnecessary dialogue into a short narrative sentence. The opening scene with Julia and her grandma can use a tighter edit.

I'm also reading more Julia Morgan material. My two big sequences with Julia Morgan will include more details on Julia's gifts, especially in chapter 4. What I'd originally intended with early Chimes scenes are quite different from where the the book eventually ended. Some early details are no longer necessary.

My dad's in town this week, so we're going out to dinner tonight. I haven't seen him in a while. Should be a fun evening.
