I'm writing, at last successfully. The restructured part 4 is at last taking shape. I still have to write the Torture The Characters More part, near the end, where threats made by various parties are followed through and uckiness happens. But I'm finally in a place where I can write that.
Am curious if anybody has read the prologue and has comments. It's still in the fluid state where I'm quite willing to take developmental feedback. Send me ze emailz to my gmail account if you prefer that.
