Mabel Update

I call this a Mabel Update, but the truth is the latest chapter feels more about Salieri. Anyway, Chapter Seventeen is done, and now I'm onto the "last" chapter of Mabel's City: The Eastern Guardian.

One of those things I won't know until I edit is whether the melodrama is too much, if its earned... I know my prose is questionable, but there's something about hitting a climax that just makes you want to throw everything on the page, consequences be dammed.

Now I am going to give some careful consideration on how I will approach Eighteen. All the pieces are set. The room is lit. The music is waiting in the player.

Time to run.
