On the Death Rituals of Ants


The Order of the Good Death never fails to brighten my day.  I may try and work in a reference to oleic acid on my revision pass.  


I'm enjoying working with Scrivener.  The book is now divided into greater sections and chapters, and I'll be working on summarizing each of them using the index card tool so I can get a better visual sense of flow and pacing for each of the storylines.  It'll also generate a version in e-reader format (or any of several other choices) when it's that time.
