I'm back from the field. Internet access was spottier than usual the last few days, so I haven't done any posting, but we should have a review or two sometime in the near future.
Regarding my work in progress, I'm now on the draft of issue #5 of a projected 10. Issues #3 and #4 both need serious work, though, as I knew they would; they contain major turning points and some of the most challenging parts to write. I have rewritten both of them multiple times. Issue #5 is coming along nicely, and after this most of what happens is action, which will take much time to construct and require a lot of technical work, but which will be less challenging artistically (at least for the writer!).
