Behind the Scenes

I've not been posting here--shame on me. I've not been writing either--shame on me. However, I was listening to the Slate Daily Podcast today and there was a discussion on a book about an explosion, a terrorist attack, on Wall Street in 1923. It occurred to me the Over the Moon novel could have a series of explosions in it, that Phani could be misdirecting Star's investigation. This would be very likely since one of Star's many character flaws is its inability to identify misdirection. I've also concluded I need to do a lot of work with Emily Dickinson. I have him as a comic. I had originally thought of him as an assassin and forgot it when I started writing. I'm wondering if he could be a private detective or former private detective and talk with Star about Star's difficulties in investigating Gwen Chen's death. Star has to be able toevaluate people's answers to questions and interpret evidence. This requires figuring out who is telling the truth, who is lying and who is keeping truths from Star. Star is so straight forward that figuring this out will take a lot of work on Star's part and may be even beyond its ccapabilities.
