I am back from Georgia. I could spend time describing the whole trip, but I have things I’d rather talk about.

    I think I like the idea of Miriam figuring out that she’s the sacrificial singer… and then going to NYC to do just that. There’s my two cents. :-)

    Your time difference (like with “The Lake House” (saw that, too, and like it) between Rane and Miriam is somewhat confusing with the sketchbook. It seems that they’re communicating via the sketchbook when he gets it from her before he meets her, but how is it that she’ll be writing to him in the book if he has it? All I can guess is that she puts something in there and then he sees it, but if that’s the case, wouldn’t that all be there when the book is given to the younger Rane?

    She has it first, and then either she’ll hand it off to the younger Rane, or he will find it after she “dies”. Thusly, he will have it when he gets to the point in his own timeline where he talks to her.

    As to why the book is blank when younger Rane gets it (and is thus blank when he and Miriam start writing)…that is a difficulty. My best idea so far is for Rane’s last drawing to somehow “wipe” the whole book on Miriam’s side. Maybe the process of bringing her into the future takes the entirety of the connection between them…thus every exchange they’ve made through the book gets carried into the future with her, leaving it blank for young Rane to find in the present.

    It’d be much easier if the book itself was magical, but I don’t think that fits aesthetically with the story. 😛

    It does seem to present a difficulty… the book has to be blank for young Rane, but if she gives it to him, it would have to be already blank. Maybe he gets it after she “dies”? I’ll have to wait I guess. :-)
