In response to the last thread, I think I’m going to stick with LiveJournal for the duration of the anachronauts project. It’s clunky, it’s sometimes being DDOSed by the Russian mafia, but it’s where a lot of my longstanding readers are. For future writing projects after anachronauts, I might change it up. As an online writer I HAVE to pay attention to the explosive growth of social networks, and the potential new readers that come with it; technology moves and changes. By the time I’m ready to launch a new project, we’ll see what the landscape looks like. For now, this’ll do.
This chapter is being a serious pain in the butt. I know GENERALLY what I need to accomplish with it, I know the major plot points. But the nuts and bolts (how do they get there? how do they get that? where will Maria be going? do I need two new characters here, or three?) are not coming easily. Plus, I’m trying to push through a bit of a City of Heroes addiction; I just got my favorite character to 50, and that’s the end of the road (sort of), so I think I can win that part of my life back now.
Story troubles plus low hanging game fruit slow things down. I think I’ve got a plan of action for the rest of sf02, though.
Enjoy the new scenes. More to come; MAYBE Thursday, but this one came pretty late on Monday and I’m gonna have a ridiculously packed Wednesday in my RL, so we’ll see.
