This section is the first between Kaori and Yuki, the book's two female characters in their early to late 20s (I was about that age when I started the book). It has been a fun and challenging section to edit. I was satisfied with the result the first time around, it was one of those that I always breezed through rereading.
That said, when I dug in I found a lot of shoddy wiring. Now that I really know who these characters are, I can tell everything with more conviction. Shadow boxing with who they later become.
In related news, I am working on a short audio accompaniment to 2.12. An Arisugawa Park podcast, if you will. This will be for après-read consumption, while waiting for the next section to take shape.** My own candid thoughts, wherever they lead. I am aiming for a dozen or two of these AP Podcasts over the course of this laying onto you of an extended cloud novel of Japan.
** For now the podcast will be on Soundcloud, while I figure out the steps necessary to make it go live on Apple Music.
