Hmm. Things are shaping up ok. A little slow, but it's only day three. I need a dead body by the end of the week. There's a phrase that can't really be acceptably said in any other profession.
As a bonus, I'm also posting the first chapter. I already know several things I'd change. I'd dump the Columbine BS. Seems way too out of date, but it might still work with some rejiggering. I originally wanted to do the introduction from a single character's POV, and still prefer that way. Not sure how it ended up being from a group's viewpoint. I'd at least rewrite that to see which one was better, but I feel this way I ended up losing the idea of a audience viewpoint character. They pop up later, but I think going the way I did was an error. Also there's my usual rough first few paragraphs, but I seem to have picked up what few skills I have a bit quicker than normal this time around.
