Character Names

A while back I asked for name submissions from readers to be incorporated into the text. I am at that point now, and went back through my emails to check for your submissions. I found two, but thought there were more. If you read this and don't see your name on the list, or would like to add one, now's your chance.

I have two names to use for mechs, with the format shown:

r3137, aka "Reviser"
abf0400, aka "Flanker"

I could use a couple more in that format, as well as one or two names for humans. Note that the letters above aren't restricted to hex A-F.

Holiday Progress

The holiday break has given me some much-appreciated breathing space to get some thoughts on paper (well, virtual paper). The rest of part four has been framed up, and I'm working through the remaining scenes. I also have quite a bit of editing to do for the existing material. Writing on the iPad is very convenient, but not conducive to good drafts. They require as much work to fix as it is to write in the first place. The complete-o-meter is being updated as I work, and here's a longitudinal look--mostly to motivate me to finish.
