  1. Ha, well, it would not be me submitting if it wasn't late, right? In my defence, it is only 7 days after my last submission. So, here are the last two chapters of TCC. I'm ready. Let me have it! (p.s. The help y'all have given me with this over the last almost three years since the first submission first time around (June 2017) is incalculable. I cannot thank you enough, but I will do my best to show it, and tell it too.)
  2. Hello all, I hope you are well and safe, and able to use any enforced layover to unleash the creative juices in a bid to remain sane!! If you don't have that time because you are on the front line of this situation, I salute you, and send you best wishes. Here is the penultimate submission of TCC. In terms of word count, I could just about have sandwiched the last two chapter and the epilogue into one submission of circa 5,300 words, but I just can't edit fast enough to do that and get something out close to Monday, so, here's a short one, with a final chapter a epilogue to come on next Monday, all things willing. Many thanks for reading, and for any comments that you may have to offer. Much appreciated. Best wishes, Robinski (p.s. 14 pages and circa 3,800 words to go after this!! )
  3. I'm terribly sorry how late this is. Take as long as you like to comment upon it, and I totally appreciate this may run into next week or whatever. Very sorry More commentary later. Rushing around again. p.s. And it's long too!!! :'O(
  4. Hi everyone, Sorry about skipping a week. I hope the WRS is not too much of a factor. There are four chapters and an epilogue remaining. The end is in sight! There will be some fairly heavy rewriting of the remaining chapters, as a couple of quite major plot points have changed. I'll also be seeking to cut them down a bit, so hopefully the end will whip through over the next few weeks! Special note for some very choice language from you-know-who. Many thanks for any comments that you may have Best, Robinski
  5. Hi folks, Here is Chapter 28 of TCC. After this one, there are three more chapters and an epilog; only 39 more pages!! Please feel free to comment on anything and everything, as little are as much as you like. All fair game. Also, an apology: my life has bene so crazy in the last several weeks that I am behind on reply to critiques, and I am very sorry about that. I will get to them in the next couple of days, I hope. Furthermore: I've stopped appending the chapter summaries, as I'm not sure they're serving much purpose, and if any new readers are piling on that this point, my apologies, but I think there's too much to really usefully summarise, and a reactive critique to style, clarity of expression, etc. would be just as useful to me, if you inclined to critique anyway. But NO PRESSURE! Never any pressure. Best, Robinski p.s. So sorry this is so late in the week!
  6. Dear all, A new chapter, the next one in fact, as luck would have it. For continuity purposes, in the second re-write of the previous chapter, the group went to the house where they expected to find TT and MR, as previous. Now the VLs play a more active part in getting the drop on the agents. The second call from MC is cut and the information is conveyed more organically (I think) through the conversation with the SAC. This latest chapter is just edited and has lost 700 words from where it was a week ago. So, I'm hoping it's tighter and more pacy and momentous. Any and all comments very much appreciated. Best, Robinski
  7. Dear all, It's the déjà vu again! Sorry to subject you to another rewrite, but at least there are some new scenes here, and less chum, I hope. Any comments at all are much appreciated. Best, Robinski Chapter Summary: 01 - In small town in British Columbia, Q and M close out the Not-All-That-Curious Case of the Stolen Art; 02 - Q and M decide on what to do next, all the options seem to have some issue or other.

They are meant to kill her, but it does not go to plan for M. Now he has a problem 05 - Back with Q and M, they speak to R before going to meet him at the airport, but the plane crashes in 'unexpected' circumstances; 06 - Q and M are questioned at the sheriff's office then taken to the hospital to see R who they manage to speak to briefly before M appears and kills R; 07 - Q and M are in the frame for R's murder. M decides they should run. Car chase thru small town. They collect 80, 'borrow' N's plane and run; 08 - E discovers T's disappearance, is suspended by DM then goes to see the YK sheriff.

Their plan will get them to YK this evening. 14 - EM is interviewed by the FBI and given an ultimatum. DM seems to be working with her, but springs an ambush, tries to kill her, but she escapes. 15 - WK continues north, speaks to his office, speaks to the RCMP, considers his moves. 16 - DM takes full control of things at GX, speaks to TOM, issues orders to increase the chaos. 17 - EM escapes YK, goes to a village to abandon her tech, then makes a choice about her future. 18 - In Canmore, the press of time is getting to Q.

They and MC exchange views on a range of subjects. Q learns MC has been manipulating him for some time. 20 - Finally, after some prep in the chopper, Q and M arrive in YK. They meet E and a friend of her's who is helping her. They are attacked my a couple of Mts, then see a pair of VRs. 21 - Our heroes drive to BR's house, encounter a roadblock and pull a ruse on the National Guard there.

DM appears at the jail. 23 - Confrontation between Q and DM in the jail, Sheriffs K and K (hmm...) arrive, but DM escapes. Kr releases the group into his custody.

PL suspends the election. 25 - Q&E reveal their suspicions, convincing Kr to go after T&Me. Kr is no at odds with Ko and skating close to the edge. From D's house, they go to the hiding place.
  8. Dear all, I was half-asleep when I finished editing this chapter so... 'quality' not assured, I'm afraid! However, most of the work was done in the hours of daylight, so hopefully it's substantially in tune with the re-written Chp.18 and there are no remnants. The plot gets a little further from the original with each chapter that is revised, so I welcome your comments and observations even more, if that's possible. Anything you have is much appreciated.

  9. Deal all, Another pretty substantial re-write. I hope this has injected more tension and significance into the events here, in a 'things getting worse' kind of way. I must say I struggled with this some, and feel that while it might be better in some aspects, perhaps still is not where I want it to be. Your comments are greatly appreciated. Best, Robinski
  10. Soooo, slight change of plan. With your indulgence, I have resubmitted Chapter 17 (23) quite significantly rewritten to address (I hope) what were some pretty substantial issues. I won't bother with the chapter recap, as I think everyone reading knows where we are at present. Many thanks for any comments. R
