Beat the Heat 27
As you've probably figured out if you've stuck with this series, one of the central dynamics in Beat the Heat is that Cameron and Luis are switching places. Luis, once an open-minded optimist, hates being a woman, while Cameron, who used to be sullen and withdrawn and originally resented his transformation, is falling in love with his life as Cassie.
I think I made that transition too fast. I'm improvising this series; while I know how this series is going to end, I'm making a lot of it up as I go. That makes the pacing difficult, since I can't match the characters' evolution to particular story beats.
This is still a fun experiment for me... but it's not quite turning out the way I wanted it to.
