  1. It ate my first attempt. Let’s try again:

    I thought you were going to list a new source – only to find that you’re pointing back to Maass’ book. Phew. I thought I’d have to read a new book.

    It has been become part of my ‘process’ to go through the 14 areas for tension that he lists – and ask myself, for each scene, whether I’m missing any opportunities to turn up the heat. I always get new ideas.
