I spend a lot of time these days thinking that, or cackling it evilly and rubbing my hands together in glee. "If they only knew! If they only knew what I have planned!" The only problem is that a number of you, judging by your reviews, do know... this is the trouble with writing stories that appeal to smart people. My readers are, well, smart.
Still, I do feel confident that very few of you have guessed everything. Which means that some of the twists and turns along the way will still surprise you, whoever you are. Now if I could just be certain of continuing to come up with good twists and fun surprises in my originals!
But that's for another day, as today is Surpassing Sunday. And yes, as I mentioned, I do have Chapter 48 of Surpassing Danger in the works, trying to make up for my fairly long hiatus, for which I apologize. Would frequent chapters through February be welcome? Is that a very silly question?
Chapter 48 is the last filler-ish chapter I will be writing for a while, and really, filler isn't the right word (thus the suffix), because at this point in the story, everything matters. All the little moments, whether they seem big and life-affecting or not, are what add up to make these people's lives.
But, of course, if you've been reading my writing for a while, you already knew that. So I will just point out that we are approaching Ginny's sixteenth birthday, and the resumption of school with Minerva as Head, and the arrival of Peter and Evanie's daughter, and... and, and, and. And a whoooole lot of things.
So everybody come pick up a hat-strap, and a glasses-strap if you wear such. Oh, and earplugs. You're going to need them. Especially when we get into April or May, and hit Chapters 56 and 57. The screaming at that point, and with just about every chapter after that, is going to be pretty deafening. Thanks, as always, and see you Tuesday!
