Mondaily - Torn World update and baby photo!

Torn World is starting the big south meets north storyline up! You can watch the community without joining as a member, and I probably won't remember to point you over there every time I update it... and it REALLY would mean a lot to me if you watch this bit. This release is meant to be a little more accessible and engaging than the scattershot updates Torn World has seen in the past and are a good point to start watching. The first post is here: http://torn-world.livejournal.com/135790.html

Right now, I'm planning to update Mondays, and MAY also add Fridays, but I'm nervous I won't be able to meet that schedule once I run out of buffer. Particularly since I started reworking one of the stories in the queue and realized that OH! The previous three sections are completely mis-cast. I've already re-cast them once, but I saw some writing advice (not aimed at me, but exceedingly valid for my work...) cautioning about introducing too many named people to a new reader, and it's had the wheels in my head turning ever since. I'm glad I caught this NOW, not after I had these sections printed, and the whole series will be stronger for not introducing a bunch of people that have NOTHING to do with the storyline in the future. (Also, I completely NEGLECT introducing an important character.) I feel like a bit of a dork for not catching this sooner. Ah, well.

Have a baby photo:

She's stirring now, time to braid my hair and be Mom.
