Every single sister and friend who gets into some romantic entanglement somehow feeds Elizabeth’s understanding of what she desires in a mate, bringing her a step closer to finding him. Say you’re writing about a hard-charging banker who’s having an extramarital affair. No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. I mean I’m questioning everything I ever knew about titles and I’m retitling some of my books and this is something of freedom as indies that we have, to re-title.

All you have to do is write one true sentence. How about which scenes have Bob as the POV character in Paris?
