Yes, that's what it means
Yes, that's what it means
#1
If you've been paying attention, you will note that the "chapter progress" note at the top of the forums now lists chapters 3 and 4 of DW8, with a total size slightly larger than the size chapter 3 used to have.  Yes, that means I've split the chapter and I'm readying the new chapter 3 for release.  It won't be immediate, though -- I still need to pass it by my prereaders.  Still, you can think of it as a belated holiday gift...

WOO-HOO!!! Big Grin

Yasuri Nanami is my number one waifu, if only because she would horribly murder all the others if they didn't shut up and toe the line.

It changed on Friday night. Furnace follies were the main reason it took so long for me to get it to the prereaders. (Who have already demanded -- and gotten -- one big change in the text.)

Hope to see it soon, Bob . . . if not on my own laptop, then on one of my hospital's shared desktops.

I've asked for comments by next Friday - the 14th. If they run out of changes before then, I'll release it earlier.
