Methuselah’s Daughter, Part 2, Chapter 16

August 2nd, 2007

Chapter 16 is up at 3500years.com. I haven’t got a lot to say about this piece- it’s pretty much classic Zsallia, particularly the confrontation with Joshua. My only regret here is that we didn’t take the time to develop both Edna and Joshua earlier on in the story because I’m not keen on introducing new characters sixteen chapters in, but it is what it is and in the end it works fairly well.

Most of the people who read this blog are already very familiar with Zsallia’s blog, but on the  off chance you’re not, there’s a trio of entries from November of 2003 that introduce Edna and Joshua: Returnings, Visitations and I know Who You Are. Some of the assumptions have changed from what is presented on the blog- originally Edna’s Great Grandmother died before Edna was born, but Dean thought it would be more powerful if Edna had actually known her personally, so Catherine Tremblay got an extra thirty years of life. I was against it at first since I’d already laid out the entire family tree, but once I gave in it became clear to me Dean was absolutely correct. Edna is now a direct connection back to Zsallia’s former life with Jeremiah McAllister (another of Dean’s changes was to rename Jeremy from Jerome to Jeremiah- he was right about that, too).

Hope you’re enjoying the story so far, and if you just can’t wait you can always buy the book 🙂
