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!

Episode Five Status

My hope is to publish Perfect, Episode Five next Sunday (23 Sept). I am editing it now and took a brief break for those who might check in to see if the next episode is finally reading. Alas, it was just not up to the standard I aspire to and will benefit – greatly, I hope –  from further tweaking.

Thank you for your patience and interest in Perfect.

Status Update

After a bit of time off, I'm back to editing, writing, and critiquing though certain problems around the house may limit the amount of time I'm able to get anything meaningful accomplished. However, my hope is have the next episode of Perfect published shortly: I'm just unable to offer a promise of the actual timing. I wish more of my working environment was under my control.

Additionally, I'm working on a new website and would like to have it ready by the end of the month. I will be moving Perfect there. Watch for further details and the unveiling of my nom de plume. No worries, I'll still answer to "Thomas."

Last, anyone know where I can find a waistcoat (vest) with lapels for a reasonable price?

Little About My Computers

Have been spending a lot of time and energy getting computers to do what I need them to do -- no matter how easy people tell me it's going to be, I find it to be a bit of a struggle. Working on a new website and home for this blog as well as Perfect and I hope they will be easier to use for both of us.

Hope you're enjoying what's left of summer (or winter if on the other side of the Equator).
