Some updates to the Pulse Chaser Page. A chapter or 2 has been added, and I've made some minor revisions throughout.
Pulse Chaser is odd in that it is my most unplotted story yet. In the Western Front series, I always had a very vague general outline drafted (usually in bullet form). Even in NotN where I spent the least time plotting and though I may have had a an overall idea of how the story "should" end, I had no idea what would happen in between and how that ending would actually look.
The Blighted had even less plotting (In a deserted area, forced out and into New Orleans, escape - that was basically all I knew from the start. I filled the details in as I went.).
With Pulse Chaser, however, I have NO idea where this story is going to go at all. All I know is the chapter I'm writing and maybe the following chapter. It is a frustrating (I like having SOME sort of plan), but it is a fun way to write since I get to enjoy the story as I create it, rather than regurgitating notes.
Anyway, I think I am becoming an anti-plotter, which could be interesting.
I'm currently at 26,000 words. I don't know how long the book will be (usually I am able to give a pretty accurate % complete, but not this time...), but I'm guessing it should come in between 40 and 50,000 words.
