7/4: 954 words. The protagonist in the new novel, Casual Business with Fairies, is a lawyer who works with insurance companies as a consultant about policy language. Normally, that wouldn’t be relevant and wouldn’t make its way into the book, but later in the book (at least as I have it planned now), his skill with contracts is going to be a significant factor in the plot. So I had to spend some time early on establishing his expertise.
