Maybe not so elegant.

Well, this is embarrassing.  After going on about how a nifty little change in the second and third books would fix all problems, I went ahead and made the change.

And it was awful.

It just didn't work. 

The only thing I can think is that both books had a certain arc, and that I can't take out a long section from one and put it in the other without losing a certain cohesiveness.  It isn't a logical difference, it's something else.  Subtle clues that show whether the chapters are supposed to be in the first half of one book but not the ending of another. 

I just know that when I read it, it was completely wrong.

I think I'll shut-up about writing for awhile.

Hey, saw Snowpiercer last night.  Cool movie.
