Progress Update, otherwise entitled: WTF was the muse on this time?  
Just a little drive-by to let everyone know that we're up to 5,516 words and eleven pages on What About Now. One more scene and a polish-up to the opening one and it's curtains. *grins* I'm so glad we're finally here in Act Five!

One more little spoiler to hold you over:

“What’s the competition done now?” Lois asked. Being assistant editors, she and Richard subscribed to every paper printed in the Metropolis area, and several of the major national papers as well. Of course, the Star was used to line Captain Jack’s cage after they’d read it, but at least they always knew what the competition was up to.
Richard reacted oddly to her casual question. He hurriedly closed the newspaper, putting it behind his back. “Nothing important,” he said. “Want some toast?”

Here's to finishing almost early!

So weird that they are casually going on with their morning routine...

Oh, it's not as normal as you think. Wait tuntil you see the big picture.

As to modern tech, not really. It's just that I haven't had the opportunities to really saw the difference yet. They have the computers at the Planet and at home. The cellphones, but my father works for the Florida Times-Union and they still print the papers, just like the old days.

I might have to write something about Martha and Clark IMing - just for the kicks . . . . .

I had this sudden vision of Clark on a Blackberry as he soars through the heavens . . .

*giggles* Well, we did have him texting Richard while flying alongside the plane several chapters ago. I want to see 7crazyread's take on it, though. Why do I get the feeling that Martha's favorite IM emoticon is the raised-eyebrow skeptical one?

Sorry, Kat, if I answered that I would have to kill you. ;)

You will see when we publish the chapter. And I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
