On Sunday, at a Think Tank at Forward Motion, I asked a question about Kensin and Bel. Something about their relationship was having a hard time clicking. Why would a mage as dominant as Kensin not dominate Bel? But I didn't want this relationship to be the usual for Kensin. Naturally, I got some great insights and ideas. Bel might be a slender, youthful kitchen servant (aka royal in diguise, but that's another story), but that doesn't mean he doesn't know his own mind.

Yesterday, during lunch and at night, I made a few changes to earlier chapters. For example, I change the backstory so that the mage Gorok killed in Alnaar was the same mage who had killed his parents. That made more sense -- I just hoped that it didn't seem contrived at the same time. :(

Eventually, I got back into Wulf's most recent journal entries. The fight with Gowan was hard to write -- because I had to keep switching back and forth to keep track of what was going on. That was hard enough to do on the computer but a real bear to write on the Palm because you have to close the current document when you switch. Still, I got in some cute moments. Kensin made what amounts to a tender moment when he told Wulf "If I die, and you make it out of here, tell Bel he can have my whips." Awww.

Oh, and something incredible happened. Wulf admitted he was wrong! Yes, it can happen. Once per book. :) This happened when he realized he was wrong about Kensin's relationship with Bel. He had been worried for Bel, but once he realized that Bel could hold his own with Kensin, he knew he didn't have to worry about that part anymore.

Oh, this is fun. There will be a Medieval restaurant opening in Arundel Mills in the summer. Maybe Mum can take the grandkids.
