Laying in Edits

I've been laying in edits for days now and I'm still  not done. Jenny had her work cut out for her.

Now that I'm two books ahead of this one, I get to fix the occasional problem that conflicts with later books. The more interesting or engaging version of the narrative always wins. (So yet, I am retconning even before publication.)

On an amusing note, Jenny sometimes makes a note, such as "this explanation strains credulity." I solve those by having a character say, "That explanations strains credulity." Basically, the characters proceed to call the bullshit or otherwise spot the stupidity. I don't explain it better.
