I got my ears boxed for posting too much too fast, so I'm posting this news again.
I wasn't happy with Chapters 1 and 2 of Carrying the Flag, so they've both been revised, chapter 1 the most, 2 not as much. I did some fixes on chapter 3 as well. No major plot changes. I humbly suggest you start over. I think you'll appreciate the changes.
Turns out I can do three blog posts a day but I welcomed the New Year in with 5 on that one day, so my posts were automatically bocked from the SOL Homepage. Unless you knew to check my blog specifically you might have missed this. My fault, won't happen again.
My thanks to Lazeez for clearing the block.
