Me again! I had to put in my two cents over here as well.
Because I've had so long to think about this between chapters now, I'm pre-plotting and very curious to see how much of what I've imagined comes true in the next chapter. I can think of only one way to circumvent the fate that's been so exquisitely foreshadowed in the last three chapters - if, of course, there is to be any circumvention. I'm hoping there is, ferverently praying there is. Though I've had to stop holding my breath waiting for the next chapter to post.
Dratted new job! Should we get up a petition to send to your boss(es) for leinency in accomplishing your tasks until this story is done? Less hours, same pay? Better working conditions (i.e the ability to write at work; internet access during the day; longer breaks ...) How can we facilitate more hours in your day so you have time to write again?
Is it killing you to have all these ideas in your head and no time to sit at the keyboard and release some of that pressure building up? How I wish there was something, anything I could do to help! Admittedly, for selfish reasons - I neeeeeee more story. You've created a junkie, I'm a basket case until my next fix!
