Revelations

I just wrote the scene where the mysterious character finally reveals what has been up this whole time.I think it works pretty well. If it reads the way it feels like it will, then the reveal will be the last step in a long series of "what is up with her?" moments.

I dropped hints, but I did not dodge or forcefully prolong the situation

Actually, it isn't much of a mystery. In fact, if the reader knows that he is reading some kind of mystery, and is thus on the look out for clues.... then it will be fairly obvious.

Anyway, I am pretty happy with it so far. Now I need to handle the aftermath of the big reveal.

In the real world, I tried out a thing called Five Sprockets. It is project managing software and a social networking web site built into one service. It is geared (no pun intended) toward film and TV people and their comic script format does not seem as useful as Celtx.

The social networking and idea managing tools are not quite as functional as they should be. For example, the section where you are supposed to be searching for potential collaborators or crew members is still built as though you were searching for someone to date.

Following a project from pre-production all the way through post-production is far too nuanced and complicated to be handled by anything but specifically constructed software. Five Sprockets seems like it was built completely from existing parts applied to new uses.

I will give it another look once it is out of its Beta phase.
