The past ten days or so I've been revising my existing plot lines to take into account the wonderful surprises that have appeared in the last four chapters that have yet to be posted or completely proofed. I've been taking care of some Life chores, and I've been enjoying other peoples' content, while creating a bit more of my own. I hope everyone is enjoying Flight of the Code Monkey. There is a lot more to come.
Once again, I want to stress that I will keep a four to five chapter buffer between the chapter I am currently writing, Chapter 25, and the last chapter posted to SOL. This buffer allows me to go back to chapters not yet posted and make changes, additions, and corrections made necessary by all the surprises that come up as I follow my existing plot outlines, and by mistakes caught by my beta readers, and talks I have with my 94-year-old mother and her sisters about growing up during the Great Depression and slaughtering farm animals to feed themselves.
