I’ve decided to shorten chapter 4. Having three limes in a row in one chapter seemed like overkill so early on in the volume–especially for the context of this particular chapter. Even hacking off the last two limes, the chapter stands at 6,730 words, so I’m not concerned. I’ll just have to integrate the other scene(s) into a later chapter, where it will fit better with relational progression. The bad news is I just needlessly typed up a bunch of stuff that you won’t see. 😦 The good news is proofreading this chapter will go a lot faster, which means I should be able to post the chapter more quickly.
