I actually did some work on “Graveyard Shift” tonight. I completely rewrote part 4, taking it in a whole different direction, with the same outcome, however. I think it goes a long way to beginning to really improve the overall story and it adds yet another plot complication that ties in with the newly added fifth character. I’m sure none of this will make sense to anyone reading this until you’ve actually read the story (which now stands at just over 17,000 words), but I mention it because it’s the first good work I’ve done on the story in about six weeks.
