Lightning Strikes Twice: Part 3? There’s a title for you. At this point it should be Lightning Strikes Thrice…
Anyway, the funny part about having a Tuesday/Thursday update schedule is that you have many more days to write the Tuesday update than the Thursday update. To my relief, this update came pretty easily.
So yeah, first day for a twice weekly update and it’s later than I intended. That bodes well. Mind you it was mostly finished Sunday. I just didn’t have time to upload it.
Incidentally, here’s something for my near term “to do” list–arrange things so that the next and/or previous post is listed at the top or bottom of the page. Unlike some people writing, I’m a web developer (programmer/sysadmin) and therefore have no excuse.
As mentioned in my last post, I’m going to try to update twice rather than once weekly starting this month. It’ll happen on Tuesday and Thursday. If it turns out that I can make it regularly, I may try for three.
That being said, initially at least, it won’t be much different in terms of actual word count for the week.
So this is the end of this section of the story. Really, I suppose it’s end of the beginning. What I’m hoping to do with the next section is try for twice weekly updates. I’m not sure that that’s possible because I’m attempting to simultaneously run a small business (web development), raise kids, and write a completely separate novel, but hey, I’ll try.
Mind you, each update may be shorter than the last few, but who knows…
Eric Burns manages to include some entertaining stuff at the beginning of his updates. Alexandra Erin generally has a humorously misleading subtitle. What do I have? Nothing but a paragraph long ramble.
And there’s a new update…
Another update. This one’s up a bit later than usual, but hey, it’s up.
I don’t know whether anyone else cares, but I’m at least happy that I’m getting to a part of the story in which I get to imagine the larger community’s response to Nick’s actions.
Another installment in this serial. As ever, it includes things that I’m happy with and a few things that I’d like to fix.
One odd thing I noticed recently is that this story includes a character named Nick and a town named Jericho. Over at Tribe, a story I only began to read within the last couple weeks, I noticed that there’s a character named Nick and a town named Jericho. Fortunately, the characters are utterly different and Tribe’s Jericho is the main setting whereas this story’s Jericho was mentioned once and never will be again.
Well, enough commentary, click through to read the story.
