GREAT column. I'm gonna post it to Facebook.

Thanks, Jean! Glad you liked it.

This is a really great "cautionary tale" Peggy! Thank goodness for the "search" feature... I almost gave a character that had had brown eyes in previous books blue eyes, but caught it at the last moment.
I think one of the reasons I -- SPOILER! SPOILER! -- burned down Inez's little home in Leaden Skies was that I was soooo frustrated trying to remember the little details about her home. Two steps up to the porch or three? Where was all the furniture positioned in the parlor? AUGH!

Goo points, Peggy. The devil is in the details, as they say. And Ann, by burning down Inez's home you could say you originated the urban renewal that we've seen in a lot of cities today.

I think most of us have had that problem with our character's eye colors and similar little points, Ann. Burning down a house in order to not have to remember the details might seem extreme, but it certainly worked in Leaden Skies.

And Mike, yes, that devil that romps in the details is tricky fellow, always trying to trip us up.
