Three or Four Problems

So, with just two weeks of distance, I'm rereading and editing. I've read the whole thing again. The last half certainly goes smoother than the first. I wonder if I'll be able to fix that. Other than that, I've fixed the easy problems, hopefully, writing a new scene in the process, and now I have three major problems left. One is a relatively simple problem of characters not behaving in a way that makes sense (failing to realize or know things they should, for the sake of a piece of dialog I wanted to have-- classic darling killing required). Two are more difficult, in that they involve things which are mentioned, but then don't get the air time they need in the story, basically a couple of themes which are shortchanged. That's going to be troublesome to fix, and it also probably means more happening, rather than less.

Can I get this done by the end of the week as planned? Stay tuned...
