Some time ago I published The Messenger. The other day Joel Young sent me My Freshman Experience. You have not yet seen that. It starts after My Debate Partner concludes. Until he sent me MFE I had no idea that MDP existed. I'd spotted TM and it struck a chord with me because I have a love of theatre, spending my student years backstage instead of passing my degree.
We are catching up, now. MDP concludes on Monday, tomorrow. When it concludes MFE starts. I recommend you catch up by reading TM on the way.
When I finished MFE I asked Joel about some obvious non sequiturs. I thought the series had concluded, but no! He has part four swirling in his brain right now. I hope it swirls to the keyboard, because he has introduced me to a world I never knew existed, the world of competitive debating. And his characters are strong, unusual.
MDP is a short story. Each of the 15 chapters is brief, whcuih is why I am releasing it five chapters at a time.
Just finished the trilogy. I feel incomplete though. Need details between Joel's freshman year and being reunited with David years later. Some info was touched upon. Perhaps I should re-read a passage from one particular story.

I had previously read My Debate Partner and The Messenger quite some time back, probably elsewhere but had never read My Freshman Experience and have yet to finish it. One thing to bear in mind when reading TM and MFE is something that will (probably?) be missed if one doesn't read MDP first is that inspite of how it might seems, there ARE happy endings (probably?). 😉
