Chapter Nineteen is posted

Very little new and interesting to report today other than that the chapter is posted. It is long (nearly 4,000 words) and it might be more than is comfortable to read on-line. (I try to keep chapters on-line under 3,000 words.) I have to say, I wrote the first 800+ words on Thanksgiving, and Steven begins his story under the influence of having had a great feast and too much ale. I got Steven to the point in his story of saying:

Now this thief had been known to the lords for many years, but had gone unpunished for his deeds because he could never be found with the stolen property. He continued to prosper amidst them as he continued steal from them. So they reasoned together that they could kill two birds with one stone by getting the thief to break the miser’s treasury, then to convict the thief at last for his crimes.

Suddenly I had to figure out how I was going to save the thief from the double jeopardy, and I had no idea how. So I spent my entire three-hour write-in yesterday writing the story that would get the thief out of his predicament in the Once Upon a Time, and still implicate Pablo Ibin Arriaga, the thief that Steven is telling the story to. It is very complicated and probably too much, but it was fun to write.
