Chapter 3 Update · 1:32pm
So chapter 3 progresses apace as I peck away on planes, trains and coffee breaks.
Thanks to a couple of long trips, however, I've made decent progress (for me). The text is currently around 8k words, though only 1/3 of that is what I'd consider fleshed out. I'm considering splitting the chapter (again) to even things out and reduce the wait for you folks.
Naturally, the bit that is more fleshed out is towards the end of the chapter, but that's Murphy for you. So the downside is there's still a bit of a wait ahead to complete the chapter, but on the upside, there will be more chapter when it arrives.
