Eureka!

The other day I was trying out a keyboard at a hardware demonstration. Instead of the traditional "Quick Brown Fox", I tend to type the first couple of sentences of my main novel length WiP, The Ruins Of Breakfast. They're words that sit in my head and keep escaping, so it's well worth giving them some exercise from time to time.

This time, however, I put in a paragraph marker, and went on. And suddenly I realised what was missing from the story: a viewpoint character who wasn't Anna. And then I knew who they were, and suddenly I found them pouring words onto the page.

Go me.

And go Anna's imaginary friend, who just turned out to be The Associated Press, with its myriad eyes and ears. We're going to have a lot of fun together as we surf the edges of the Singularity.
