Lovelace 1/2 #13

This entry is part 13 of 13 in the series Lovelace 1/2

As stated in the Labor Day post, this is one of the busiest two week periods we have in the business of academia. We’ve spent the summer prepping for students and faculty to return, but when they actually do return, things get amazingly crazy, amazingly fast. That’s where we are now, for those playing along at home. So, if my prep time was pushed to mid-day instead of morning… well, for the next two weeks that may happen. Sorry. (insert smily faced emoticon here.)

Of course, actually posting this has been a trial given some hosting company issues….

As for this particular episode of Lovelace 1/2….

Well, it was a hard one to write, but it’s also the first episode I conceptualized from beginning to end as an episode, before I even wrote #1.

Here it is.

Lovelace 1/2 #12

This entry is part 12 of 13 in the series Lovelace 1/2

So. It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s Lovelace 1/2.

This is an exceptionally busy time for me, day job wise. I work at a school — for the record, not Brooks-Carillon. In fact, my school and Brooks-Carillon aren’t that much alike, beyond a superficial similarity common to many private schools. However, we’re gearing up for the start of the school year, and this means my days are long and my nights are short.

Naturally, one of the pivotal moments of the story hits this week.

Here we go….

Lovelace 1/2 #10

This entry is part 10 of 13 in the series Lovelace 1/2

Wednesday means Lovelace 1/2, and this is no exception. I’m not sure what else to say about that. For those who haven’t seen, yet, you’ll notice brand spanking new Series navigation, including a specific series page for Lovelace 1/2 that even features first post to last post ordering. You have to admit — pretty swank.

Things are definitely moving. Where they go… well.

For the record, there may — may — be a moment of wish fulfillment in this episode.

I hope you enjoy Lovelace 1/2 #11

Lovelace 1/2 #9

This entry is part 9 of 13 in the series Lovelace 1/2

There were server problems overnight, so final prep on this post was about a half-hour late. I’m not sure anyone cared (or even noticed) but me, but there we are anyway.

Nine parts into Lovelace 1/2. It’s kind of wild to me how quickly this is going — at least in one sense. Having a novel unfold at this pace is… well, interesting, for certain. In one sense, we’re in Part 9. In another sense, we’re almost finished the beginning, if that makes sense.

Either way, I hope you enjoy!

Lovelace 1/2 #4

This entry is part 4 of 13 in the series Lovelace 1/2

Part four of Lovelace 1/2. I’ve been enjoying the speculation of the limits of Andi’s new abilities. There’s some good meat for that discussion in this one — I think, at least. As well as the seeds of… well, what’s going to come next. Enjoy!

Lovelace 1/2 #2

This entry is part 2 of 13 in the series Lovelace 1/2

Part two of the new ongoing story Lovelace 1/2. Folks seemed to like Andi the last time out, which is very cool.

I should mention something right at the outset. I work at a private school myself — some of the details at Brooks-Carillon comes from my school. However, the location of the school — just outside Brunswick, Maine — is several hours from here. None of the characters are based on any faculty, staff or students of the school where I work. This is wholly a work of fiction.
