Or Die Alone – Editing Update

Another 6000 words today. I’ve slowed down a little bit because I’ve identified some issues with Chapter 12 that I feel require some small rewrites. In reintroducing Boyd and Lorza to the climax of the story (where they were strangely absent in the original) I inadvertently made Captain Stavros appear less competent by having them make too many suggestions and steer the conflict in his place.
I’m changing some of their interactions to address that imbalance and to make their input more appropriate to their areas of expertise.
I also feel that the objectives of the invasion were somewhat unclear, so I’m switching the focus away from the number of missiles fired to revolve more around taking control of the tether.
