So what happens next

Babette: So Loretta is having lunch with Jonathan's father, who is thrilled she is carrying his grandson?

Me: Yes, but he's even more relieved to think Jonathan isn't gay?

Babette: But he is, isn't he.

Me: I'm not sure. I'm not one of those writers that plans things out in advance. I think I know how Murder in Edinburgh will end, but sometimes surprise myself. In Murder in Caleb's Landing, I changed the murderer at the end and when I went to drop clues in earlier chapters I found they were already there.

Babette: Creative process, Hun?

Me: Something like that. Now, please may I have my keyboard back?
