NOTE ON MY EXAMPLE TEXT
Wendy (Havant group) noticed a couple of glitches in my sample text on meeting a stranger. I've repaired the first one, making it clear who says 'I know you', but when I came to repair the second point she noticed, that first he's called Reg and then Tom, I realised that in fact the divine voice of the Muse had been speaking through me without my realising. I mean, why WOULD somebody call him Reg when his name is Tom? Had she known him under a false name? Had he changed his name since she'd last seen him. Or, further, the question "Reg?" could be read as 'Remember Reg?' just as well as 'Hello Reg.'
