so that's the problem

figuring out the weakness of the opening: it's two scenes, and the first is mostly info-dumping.

It should start in the forest, talking about firebirds and golden stags and info-dumping there, because it's not much information, actually.

So all I have to do is dump four pages and rewrite. Which is trivial. I've done much more.

sigh So I'm still bracing myself for it. The writing life.
