Novels have lots of details inside of them, particularly if you have mysteries going on.
I am at chapter 17 of the current novel and in the mosh pit of emotion where the protagonist finds a photo of her father, the first shes ever seen and some of his face is torn by something she earlier did. She has a minor review of past episodes and well - my memory for those details is lacking. I tend to write bits of details into scenes as I go along versus exposition so stuff is sprinkled here and there. So, its time to reread and pick up the details I'm uncertain of. Doh.
This has been a muckydoodle day with a crashed Internet, lying DMV and nearly lying GEICO agent all gooped together to offtrack my time. - just saying
