I got to wondering recently, just how closely do writers have to adhere to the sequence of events (I hesitate to call it a plot) of the LB novels? I mean does the Anti-Christ have to be Nicky Poconos? Or can we invent someone vaguely plausible? My wondering came to a head with the time line questions on the Newport narrative. I mean, I can fudge "Doctor in the House" in that regard, but some of the other writers have locked themselves into other times for the Event.
I also want to start another narrative centered around a different viewpoint character. She was originally intended to be a secondary character in Michelle's story, but discussions of alternative meanings of the Rapture plus the question of how do the Catholics react made me think that maybe she deserves her own story.
