As I have begun outlining Chapter 20 of DTRT (working title “Taken”), I also reread the most recent chapters of DTRT and went over my notes. Let me tell you, I’ve got a lot of notes. Hah. The good thing about a complicated mess such as DTRT is that there are many avenues to build the plot and bury the plot bunnies. What sucks is that at some point they all have to be addressed one way or another. So, I’m preparing to address the unresolved and unclear stuff, and that’s where you, my dear reader, come in. Since you guys are the best critics of my work, I want to make sure I don’t leave anything behind, ‘cause there are only a few chapters left in the story.
I would like to give answers to as many questions as I possibly can, and if you think of any loose ends, let me know. It may be anything – a trifle, or a major turn of events – whatever bothers you in this chapter or that, even back to Put Me First. Why did he say this? Who did that? Who was hiding outside Fangtasia the night Eric went tracking but heard Sookie and dropped the hunt and flew to Bon Temps? Etc. You get the idea, I’m sure. If it’s something that has already been dealt with, I’ll just clarify in response to the comment.
While I retain my right as the author to twist the story any way it takes me (the characters steer the wheel, I just hold on to it), I do want to thank you all for being so kind to me and my rants, forgiving my mistakes, and encouraging me along the way. And I can’t bare the thought of any of you walking away disappointed because there are missing or inconsistent pieces to the puzzle.
By the way, I might not post a sneak peek into the upcoming chapter. Too many spoilers
