PDFs vs Inline Text

If you have tried to read Perfect in the last couple of days, you will have seen the horrible Google Docs version of the PDFs for Perfect. I say horrible because it bypasses whatever PDF interface you are used to seeing and shows a bunch of stuff that isn't necessary.

Well, good news! I finally was able to find a place to post just the PDF files so you can now read them like you would any other file. You may choose from Current Episode [Six] or all episodes [One-Six].

In the future I'm thinking of just replacing these two files with the next episode and a complete set off all episodes. However, does anyone need inline (HTML) text? If so, please leave a comment below. I can look for another publishing option.

Thanks for your support!

Perfect, Episode Six

Choose which you wish to view:
Hey, what's with the new logo? Just a little something I've designed for the project since my last update.

Why am I no longer publishing Perfect as a separate page? I lost the wifi internet connection this past week. Given the document's size and the way Blogger handles formatting, I am uninterested in spending hours formatting the page. When I tried to paste Episode Six on the Perfect page the text basically ran together. Additionally, I tend to get lots of errors because of my slow internet connection. To maintain readability I've decided to try publishing the current episode and all episodes as PDFs.

How will future episodes be made available? Unless I hear that people are unable to access the PDFs, I will probably just continue to publish the current episode and an updated novel-like publication of all episodes. However, I'm also hoping to move to a new website in the next month or so -- returning to inline text may prove easier there.

I can't access the PDFs. Uh oh! Please leave a comment below explaining what type of error you received and I'll see what I can do.

Perfect, Episode Five

I'm pleased to announce that the fifth installment of Perfect was published last night. Not only have I moved to the new computer, but I republished the text in the hope the page would load better. Still working out some bugs there.

In case you are curious, there have been no substantive changes to earlier episodes. If a typographical error or punctuation problem comes to my attention, I do fix those. Also, instead of buying beans in the market (episode four), Avinashika buys lentils which she eats in episode five. A minor point, but it worked better. Otherwise, I'm trying to let the earlier text stand as it was initially presented even if there are things that might be changed for the better -- oh what sore temptation!

As always, please feel free to leave comments or questions. It's always fun to know what readers are thinking about the characters and situations. While I will probably chose not to respond to them directly, I do keep them in mind when further unraveling the story. I'm looking forward to episode six -- 'stuff' will really start to happen -- but you already knew that, right?

Enjoy Perfect, episode five!
