    You've got a very interesting premise here, especially the suggestion that something which had previously not been thought of as a threat, a cloud of very small meteors, ... Show More

    • Jeffrey Schaben Thanks so much for your comment. I have rethought the story and after your comments and those from a writers group I started attending, I decided to rethink the story line and have came up with a new premise to rewrite the story on. Mainly I have kept to two main char. and will detail their romantic history. Mostly I replaced the concept of the talking head and inserted a new main character Chis Lyons, the archivist (which is a new fictitious field of associate degree technicians to streamline the field of journalism). The role of this position was to record peoples lives to be archived before the cataclysmic event. And have moved the starting point to two weeks prior event. Am proofing it this weekend and hope to update the new revision by Sunday. The only thing I kept was the godlike disembodied voice setting up the premise of small dust cloud millions of miles away having a big impact on our daily life.

    • Jeffrey Schaben Thanks. Won't be able to post a Sunday update. Social functions all week. Third chapter is a little rushed due to lack of time.

    • Jeffrey Schaben Thanks you for reading. I will contemplate this information. I guess what I was trying to establish in the beginning was a sense of foreboding with a touch of disbelief, mixed with spectacle. A reality in which the event is imminent, but there is still a touch of disbelief. Like a large amount of people believing that a dust storm from space would not really have an impact. That it is just another attempt to manipulate and control the public. They are more concerned with the smaller meteorites that will cause immediate damage, but the effects of the dust are largely dismissed as hysteria. Ultimately, the story will be about the machinations of people positioning themselves to survive, and to be in power after the event. Chapter five is the introduction of the Tribulation cult (undecided name yet), and their strategy to survive and carry on the good fight after the event.

    • Leigh Kimmel It is scary, as I can say from experience being stuck in broken-down vehicles on the side of the road. No matter how wide the shoulder is, it never feels wide enough when the cars are zipping right past you. Have no fear, the story's not going to end messily here. I'm currently up to Chapter 16, and tentatively have twelve more chapters after that (assuming I don't have a major development in the course of writing it and it goes in a direction I hadn't planned).
