A quick update: I am still plugging away at parts 2 and 3 of Adam and the Ants. These two parts have some intertwining plot elements so I kind of have to outline (and draft some of) both at the same time. In fact, I actually drafted most of the climax of part 3 before part 1 was even finished!
I'm also having some difficulty in that in Part 2 I need to put Adam into a very dark place, emotionally rather than physically this time. Part 1 was written drawing on a lot of my own experiences at that age. Unfortunately, (especially for Adam!) I don't have any corresponding experiences to draw on this time and so it's going a little slower.
In the mean time, I just sent a new single-chapter story to my proofreaders to work their magic on. It's set in the MasterPC universe, but rather than a full story it's more of a "day in the life" kind of thing. I hope to possibly make it a series of loosely related stories. Look for it some time next week....
