She uses her psychologist background to give the impression of being very approachable and friendly and makes people feel at ease quickly (helpful for an investigator for people to tell her their secrets), but she doesn’t ever share much of herself. She encourages people to talk about themselves (which we all love and are happy to do).
I have tolerated the treatment well, no vomiting and nausea for me, I know I’m very lucky for all of this. It would be churlish to be jealous of other people’s health or the lack of interruption in their lives.
Did I write that bit already in the book or just in the prep? Haha, previously I would have wasted time and energy trying to work that out as I go. This time, I’m going to start with the idea of using the scene list and crossing .them off as I go and marking up when I reference stuff again.
The Police Woman and Protagonist will become friends and the Protagonist will be welcomed into their family. This family are the opposite of the family the Protagonist grew up in, open, affectionate, stable, share emotions, no secrets.

In a first world way, things are tough at the moment. They’ve been tough in one way or another for a while. It all came to a head and ended up have a good old, ugly, snotty cry.
When I get very wordy in an attempt to clarify something through added explanation I can easily confuse the situation more.
Had brunch with a visiting friend today and we came up with a great character to kill off – my first murder! So exciting.
