Chapters two and three done
The system I've devised seems to be working. The collected fragments that come to me during my commute or at the grocery store that get put on the tape and later transcribed are similar enough and adhere to the theme closely enough that I don't think it'd be as jarring jumping from one to the next as I had feared. Obviously, some of the transitions are taking far more work than others, but I'm happy with what's born in those moments that I'm laying the mortar that holds the bricks together. In fact, I don't think I could have effectively written these transitions before I was this familiar with the story and characters.
I've settled on the names of two more of the characters. Alas, the protagonist's name is still up in the air.
Two more chapters and then the players are unleashed on the distant planet.
