I put aside the carnival story because I can't pin down a good beginning. Instead, I went back to my vampire story and that blossomed very nicely. I hope to finish that up either today or tomorrow and then edit it next week with "fresh" eyes. (I have a new pair ordered that should be here by Friday...)
