I cut this page because of pacing, then realised the pacing was even worse without it, so I put it back in.

I'm a writer.

Well played :)

Not sure what this page provides in the greater narrative, besides an actual reason for Anna to be angry. This stands in mild contrast against the rest of the time when she doesn't have any specific excuse for it.

I tease, because I know how hard it is to line up character intentions, emotions, characteristics, and actions. Real life tends not to have those all line up in ways that make sense all the time, but we builders of narratives don't get to use that excuse. Worse than that, quite a lot of real life stories flat out aren't terribly believable, such as the life and times of former Member of Parliament Ignatius Timothy Trebitsch-Lincoln.

Hopefully it'll make the last page and the next one come together a bit better, plus it's an excuse to show Anna's early dynamic with Seth (and how things haven't really changed there)

And yeah, real life has this annoying habit of not being terribly believable. "Why a writer's job is harder than God's" indeed.

I dunno if this is gonna be relevant at all, but past Seth sure looks exhausted.

Not necessarily relevant to this chapter, but yeah, it was a bit of a stressful time for him. I'll no doubt show a flashback from his point of view eventually to go into why.
