wow. that felt really good. now I remember what that’s like. alas, that is simply the overview. I don’t know quite where to drop that, either. at the beginning of the crater section? well, probably after the opening — as the introduction to the several years that she spends there, but after Marcus’ departure?
I’m wondering if it really makes sense to have him gone so much. or perhaps I should just rewrite that to include him: her bunk is in a tent, she spends time working with him (in addition to working with Joan, I think. that interaction needs to come up in order to seed what happens later!), etc.
okay, now it’s time to drag out the draft again.
