I have been working on "Paradigm Shift," so there will be a next part coming up shortly. It's just that I've been focusing on adding Park's story for my beta readers. I want to give them complete chapters to look at, which means adding Park's pieces in-between Gregor's and smoothing things over. It's putting me back on my editing of the Gregor portions of the current chapters.
Does that make sense? It's very late and I've been indulging a little. (It's the only thing that keeps me from sneaking over to the fanfiction sites. I am forced to focus on one task at a time because of the weird fluidity of time. Having to hold onto my equilibrium means I slog forward one foot in front of the other toward a singular goal. Then, when that one's done, it's on to the next, and then the next, and so forth until I fall asleep.) I would usually be crawling the Internet, mindlessly clicking on things, but I felt like I should let you guys know what's going on with my writing. It's something I need to do while it's at the front of my mind.
- I've been working on "Paradigm Shift": Adding Dylan's part. Editing chapters 1-5. Posting them to my lovely betas :) Writing next section of ParaShift (though it's currently in handwritten pages, which need to be typed up before editing).
- Wrapping up Part Four of "Tuesday Night": It's more action-heavy than I usually write, which is hard for me. These guys are so thought-heavy and full of feelings that some scenes don't want to come out the way I first plan. Which means rewriting, rearrangement, and reassessment. (The story has become so much better thanks to Kat and Katherine, who have pointed out my continuity errors and all the things that struck them as weird. I'm reworking the beginning, and it's turning out better.)
- Glossing through "Faizel's" second adventure. Still missing that big chunk of scene near the beginning, but most everything else is turning out beautiful. Shiny!
- I've got several short pieces I've been editing/picking through.
