I'm over the 'hump', just halfway through the WIP at 41,000 words, so I'll be heading towards connecting all of the loose threads that I've got lying around, as well as sending my protagonist detective into some life-changing events—falling in love after years of widowhood, and, in that happy state, almost getting killed by being stabbed.
I realised last night, while editing, that an unintentional trope has entered this story—that of 'stickiness'! There's sticky oil paint, glutinous embalming fluid, seeping body juices (!), fingerprint powder, splattered concrete and pints of blood. I might need wet wipes.
