Starting on the next one now… I’m trying to get ahead so things get up on time for Friday. Friends of mine decided to start a science fiction book club. I’ll be going to the first meeting Thursday night.
The scene shifts and we get to see a couple characters that haven’t appeared for a while–plus the odd costumed menace.
When I was in college, one of my friends inherited his grandparents’ Cadillac. After that, the police pulled him over with even the most minimal excuse. I’m guessing they thought he’d stolen it.
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
