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.

It’s late, but it’s here. It’s also a bit longer than normal.

This one’s not even arguably on Thursday. As I write this, it is Friday, but you know what? I’m cheating. I’ve just edited the timestamp to have this post show it was posted on Thursday anyway.
One more thing I should mention. I’m shocked that I’ve managed to get eight updates into this story without anybody getting punched. In a story about superheroes there’s got to be something wrong when that happens. Thus you’ll be happy to know that someone finally does get punched in this installment.

And the Tuesday update finally appears. The day’s what, only three-fourths finished? I’m thinking that still counts for Tuesday–except maybe in countries where it’s already Wednesday.

Finally the update is actually up. I’m looking forward to a week where I have more time to write and more importantly, more time to revise.

This post is late for a variety of reasons ranging from a nasty cold that kept me home from work to personal responsibilities that needed attention…
On the bright side, it’s up.

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.

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…
