Assimilation - Chapter 10 (Spoilers)

Post by Mad Monk » Wed Mar 03, 2010 11:53 am

Not a lot this time, just a couple of links to sites about Bunyips.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunyip

This second site is aimed more at kids, but has a lot of good history and pictures. WARNING! this site is noisy, so don't open it at work.

Rational people have supported the worst dictators of history - Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc.

I'm mad - at least I have an excuse for what I do.

Yes, it was short, but it seemed a good spot to break. The next chapter will be longer, but will take two or three weeks to get right.

Dellstart and I are not writing powerhouses like Fel is. Niether of us is a touch typist, we are both "hunt n peckers."

I really am impressed at Fel's output, both quality and quantity.

With two writers, each of us keeps correcting each other's work. It slows down the creative process considerably. We have creative differences, sometimes requiring large sections to be re-written. We do it so that the story is as good as we can write. To quote:
dellstart wrote:does anyone realize how hard those pages were to get right? How many rewrites blood sweat and at time tears of frustration?
The earlier chapters came out so quickly because they had been written over a period of a year. Even so, its only about 10% of the length of "Subjugation" It is still approaching 65, 000 words.

Any chance of us seeing the next chapter any time soon?
I know that the voices in my head aren't real.
But they do have some damned good ideas. = ~.^ =

Hope to have next chapter out in the next day or 2.

Delay has been my fault - had to prepare a script for a battle at a Norman Castle, and commentate on it. Interesting when people are swinging swords and poleaxes in front of your face, and archers are trying to shoot you. :lol:

I'll use this thread rather than starting a new one.

I've just read through all eleven chapters in one sitting, and I am very impressed, the two of you have done a fantastic job, and I join the crew eagerly awaiting further chapters.

Just, really really impressed.
