So, without revealing too much, I had a major issue with a character's background (a MAJOR character, too) because it just wasn't jiving with what I wanted. I think I've finally figured out how it will all work together now, so when I get to tweaking/editing that section, this issue won't be an issue anymore.
I think I've spent a significant amount of my day at Panera. It's about time to go. There's always more time later to keep going.
