A year???

It hasn’t been a whole year since I posted, has it?  I guess I’m not winning over too many new fans at this rate.

During the summer, I have no classes and I have more time to think and write – if I don’t find other less productive ways to spend my time.  This past summer I was laid up for a few weeks with a bad back.  That should have been my excuse to do even more writing, but alas… I failed.

I did, however, get up enough steam to rewrite… and I do mean rewrite, not just edit… the first half of Chapter 1.  I didn’t manage to get Emily and Alistair to the train station yet, but I got them out of the house!

I looked at all the helpful criticism I got on Scribophile and really attacked the story.  The result is a vast improvement.  I’ve posted the new chapter here.  The old one is nothing but scrambled bits floating randomly around my hard drive.

New Year’s resolution?  I don’t believe in them.  But I will try to post more often, even if I don’t think I have anything much to say.  I can always find something to bitch about over on The Grumpy Curmudgeon.
