Spent the evening rewriting the first long scene of chapter H, changing it from "Jason whines about his awful job and commute and reads in the paper about how society is breaking down" to "Jason runs from a riot." Made the job and the commute worse while I was at it.
As I pointed out to Kate, during the day I try to make life easier for my customers. At night I make life harder for my characters. It all evens out.
Next, I'm going to take the scene were Jason loses his job and change that into something really nasty.
