I’d been hoping to do this installment and the one that follows it in one post, but it went longer than I wanted…
Update up. It includes a lot of characters–some active, some in the background. I always find scenes like that challenging. It’s hard to give any characters the time they deserve.
I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid I wanted a Batmobile pretty badly.
A quick look at the top of the page will show you that a cast page now exists and includes a lot of names (but only three descriptions with any detail). I plan to add more description one character at a time.
If you’re someone who’s prone to checking the title of the story arc, you’ll be interested to discover that we’ve started another section. The last one moved a little more slowly than I’d like. Hopefully I’ll be able to avoid that in the current section.
It was finished last night around 1 am, but I thought I’d wait until this morning to post it. I didn’t particularly trust my judgment at that point.
This morning came and I had a business meeting, issues related to three or four different clients, research to do on a programming problem, and before I knew it it was 8 pm… And I still hadn’t eaten supper.
There you have it, that’s how updates get posted almost 24 hours after they get finished.
I finished it last night and revised it a little this morning. You can look forward to finding three new characters, but still no cast page. Maybe I’ll get more done on that this weekend…
Some of you might have noticed that I changed the last installment’s title and made it the beginning of a new section of the story. I’ve even gotten a little way into writing a cast page. I haven’t made it public yet, however.
There are more characters than I’d have thought and I’m introducing a few more in the course of the next couple posts.
So, anyway… Another chunk of story. Continue reading Gathering: Part 2
So here’s something odd that happened today. Someone sent me an email addressed to Nick. Not the Nick in the story, but some Nick who has the same last name I do and appears to go to college somewhere in California.
I have no idea what’s up with that.
To me, it seems obvious that this is a web serial and not a personal blog. I can’t imagine that anyone who read very far could confuse this for reality–especially not someone with a doctorate.
The email appears to be a note from one of his profs.
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.
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.
