I wrote 542 words tonight and ended with “Why the hell are you reading a n*** book?” on behalf of Corey. I think this is a good stopping place simply because I’m amused by how naturally it seemed to fall out of Corey as I was writing him and how dirty it sounds as I tried to type it.
This is such a key point in the novel that it’s worth stopping for a moment and coming back to this with fresh eyes as I attempt to describe Damen’s confusion and later horror over what was just said. I’ve got nothing else to add tonight other than this. I just thought it worth mentioning.
