I’ve been away with limited Internet access. I hope you noticed:-)
I was, however, able to work on Book 3 of The Modest Proposal Institute so it is progressing — though more slowly than I would like. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a fast writer.
Part of the reason it’s moving slowly is the story is getting harder to tell because the stage has moved out to the wider world. We’re no longer confined to a small island or small plots of land around spaceports. There are more characters too. In particular, now that girls and young women have been brought into the Institute, their story needs to be told as well.
In fact, I’m not sure my original plan of five books is going to be enough. We’ll see how it all develops.
