Restraint update

Sigh.

I have been longing to work on Restraint, and have only been able to snatch an hour here or there.

Chapter 40 is finally taking shape, and it's going in quite an unexpected direction. The relationship between John and Tristan has changed, and is demanding some closer examination, so despite my plan of galloping through several years in chapters 40 and 41, and winding the story up, it's insisting on its own pace.

I'm getting a lot of satisfaction from the unexpected details of John's return to London alone while Tristan's duty keeps him in France. We get to know Uncle Martin and his companion Mr Braithwaite a little better, and it seems that John's new servant, Billy Collins, wants to spend some time on stage too.

So for the lovely people who are still with me in this story: progress has come slowly this chapter, but there's progress at last.

I've got a four-day weekend coming up, and nothing planned except to write Chapter 40, and delve into John and Tristan's maturing relationship. I hope to post before too many more days have passed.
