is progressing nicely. I've finally figured out where Chapter 10 is going, which is nice seeing as I have to post it next Wednesday if I'm going to keep on schedule.
I have found myself questioning the organization of the story, however. I'm wondering if I wouldn't be better off writing three seperate stories rather than seperating the chapters as I am. ... Maybe I'm not giving my readers enough credit. I think the problem is that I am not getting any feedback on the new chapters and the hit count has dropped dramatically, so I'm a concerned that I'm loosing my readers. Admitedly, I am planning on having two of the three branches come together in the next ten chapters. Maybe that will make a difference.
Ah well, I'll keep an eye on things and make a decision later.
As for Life After Death
, that baby is back on the rails. The boys still have to make their escape attempt and Eltara has some tricks in her packs, but it's coming along nicely. I'm hoping that I'll be able to give Tandor some more air time. He really is quite clever and dangerous, just a little spineless whenm it comes to his Captain and twu wuv. There's a lot that I want to cover before the boys get out of this.
And Donatello and Raphael are refusing to talk to me about Return to Darkness
, so that's at a bit of a standstill. All I've been able to put down is that it takes place while Leo is in Japan, so I won't have to write him (I've always had problems writing his character properly).
Nothing is really coming to me from Smokescreen
(I think he's angry at me for sticking him in Life After Death), though I do have a plot bunny for Daring Smokescreen, but it's a deathfic and I don't know if I want to write it. And lastly, I'm stuck on Vingettes
and the mecha_erotica
December Challenge is just a nugget so far.
... You know, after writing this, I know what my problem is. Oversaturation ... I really need to cage these bunnies and get them sorted out ...
