We’re still on schedule to wrap up Part III of Summer Boys, Summer Dreams a week from today and I’m planning to take a break from the story at that time. I’m not sure when I’ll be back after that, but I’ll post a notice here and at the blog on or around January 6, 2014, letting you know when the story will resume.
Exactly how it will resume remains to be seen. I’ll have more to say about that next Monday. For now let me just say that I’m pretty upset with the way things are going in this country (although we did get some great news today). Feeling that way, there are times when I wonder why I’m wasting my time writing stories when I should be spending it fighting for real change in the United States.
There are only so many hours in the day after all and time spent writing is time taken away from opposing policies like those Judge Leon ruled against today. I need to think about that, which mostly means trying to decide whether and to what extent I should scale back the story. One possibility would be to briefly summarize Part IV (Chapters 34 to 47) in a few hundred words and then move on immediately to the conclusion, Part V (Chapters 48 to 53).
Whatever eventually gets decided, I’ve posted a picture above of still another member of our team as well as the latest chapter of our tale. Have fun reading and be sure to let me know what you think.
