Horrible things done to characters: I have just killed someone. Well, a couple of someones, actually, but the bad guys don't count. :)

Other: This is definitely a shitty first draft-cum-outline, but the story is working, I think. There will be time to write it well when I've done some world building -- and thought up some names for characters and places! After managing to name Ivan (was Igor), a new character D has entered and they're still in the Adjective Palace in not-France.

I am beginning to wonder whether this draft will run to the full 67500 of novel_in_90, but we shall see. However, even if it comes in at not much more than 50000, I'm not worried about the final novel length because there is masses of detail that needs adding and possibly some flashbacks to Zanna's childhood too.
