STRANGERS SITE ON HIATUS: those of you who follow the Strangers site may have noticed a lack of updates on the site for quite a while- I have decided to put the site on hiatus while I work on completing the text itself. You can read the full reasons for the hiatus here, but the TL;DR version is that Strangers is not dead- far from it- it is simply not a great working method, I’ve discovered, to try and update/make public something that is very, very much still in progress.
I have actually been working on the project’s text privately for a few months now and it’s been so much more freeing to know I can change around things without contradicting myself, etc. The strangers manuscript is around 50,000 words so far (down from around 80,000…), so as you can imagine, there are a lot of small details that need to be changed around during edits. I only hope that I won’t disappoint those who do enjoy the site. There will be more Strangers things in the future, no worries there.
