As I mentioned, chapter one went up on Saturday over here. Well, guess what, Kate has already written Chapter Two. I don't know if the website is wonky or if both Kate and I are incompetent, but she couldn't make it take her post either. So, we've emailed it off to Tom (who should be really thrilled, just about now that he graciously set up the site).
A couple of things. First, a reminder to date your post at least one minute earlier than the chapter that precedes yours...that way they stay in reading order. Second, I'll email them, but Jeri is now at bat and Michelle is on deck.
Lastly I don't want to pick nits, (especially since I really like the direction Kate sent our story), but I can see where keeping details consistent is going to be difficult sooner rather than later. I'm wondering if anyone would volunteer to prepare and maintain a "Bible" for the story?...notes about who is who, how old, etc. etc. Include personal descriptions when they've been given so someone three chapters down the line doesn't have some tall skinny character get stuck on the toilet because of his fat ass. You know, that sort of stuff that we can all refer back to to keep things straight.
If anyone is willing to do this, I think we ought to put it on the tail end of the story where it won't get in the way, but where we'll all know how to find it if we're looking for a detail.
Oh, and as long as we're on the subject of details, although I failed to make the reference, Chapter One (and Two -- that doesn't count as a spoiler), take place in late spring or early summer of 1942, early in the war effort.
