Anyone who might like to get a feel for the Portland music scene - this is the local rag and just about the only decent newspaper in town for local politics, news, music, entertainment, etc.

This is a web comic I've followed for years... but the author has a "wall breaking moment" here where she explains how strategic storyboarding is critical but that the characters themselves participate in the story flow and sometimes they take the story where you never expected.

Sometimes the author is just as curious as the reader to see what the characters will do next. My characters are already leading me in directions not originally planned )

edit: I'm releasing two chapters at once later today... they are tightly interlinked so ya'll get a bonus. Doing final derp checks.

One thing useful for writers, especially if they have a frequent locale or "set" they're in, is to sketch the layout for purposes of continuity. Otherwise, the reader can get confused by moving furniture, doors appearing and disappearing, etc.

Here's the layout for "Rocket Science Labs" (Blar's condo unit). The kitchen has an open bar so there's line of sight to the living room. I didn't bother with the practice room since its just a big square. The condo occupies the corner of the top floor and is actually two units that were purchased and merged (which is where a lot of Blar's original pile of money went). Effort time about 20 minutes.

Next up, road trip ...

I'll probably tinker with sections of this for a bit, parts of it feel wonky.

Author note: took some serious head beating to get into "road trip" frame of mind. I was pretty comfortable with the home town setting.

A bit of the performance in the Castro "hipster" club, their first road gig. Its the tune that Tsika and Blar sang on the street earlier. The Blind Lemon tune "No Rain".

EDIT: replacing this with another tune. EMI is apparently a jerk (blocked in 243 countries, think of the children or something, meanwhile, the tune has dozens of instances on Youtube that seem to work just fine?)

Its the Blind Lemon tune - "No Rain".
Thanks for comment. And really, people are welcome to comment or make suggestions. If people don't feel comfortable here, they can always PM.

Will post a different one (taking the "No Rain" tune down).

Author notes: once again my characters have demanded story arc rewrites before publication. The next chapter might be a day late depending on real life interrupts. I'm not really happy with the night club parts of this chapter but I'm going to let it sit and move on.

It is a silly song. A old little ditty the group sang during the performance in San Francisco. Silly song, you have been warned

Bonus -- this is their opener in Monterey (something for those who like an edge).

Okay and I admit it - Twin-tail headbanging is utter win (and every character gets a solo in this piece)

Apologies to those trying to read -- just figured out several chapters were snafu'd because the TLDR meta-tags are cutting off large chunks of text if certain text characters are used. I think I've repaired them all, so if a chapter seemed way too short or cut off, it should be corrected now.

I'm starting to consider moving this story to a website so the forum software stops biting the chapters so often.
