Nano update

Had a really nice day writing...finished some of the setup for a really important scene to start, where the heroine will discover why all these weird things are happening and finally, eventually, meet the male protagonist face to face, in the same place.  It's sort of a twist (a weird twist) on the sleeping beauty motif, where she's the one to release the hero, instead of the hero being the one to release her...
