This is more like it. I feel like I’m actually getting somewhere now – still not fast enough, mind you, but I can feel the momentum building. Plus the appraisal is done with (and seemed to go positively), so my evenings can now focus on Evinden more fully. Of course, life is always trying to get in the way, as I’ve mentioned before, and we have friends staying this weekend. Great to see them, of course, but not conducive to lots of writing!
Nonetheless, it creeps onwards towards the big 100,000. I never really thought Evinden would grow to this kind of size, although I also wouldn’t be surprised to see it shrink by the time I finish editing.
Curiously I’m at a place in the story both thematically and plot-wise which mirrors quite closely the current events on Battlestar Galactica. Interesting, given that I had these plot events worked out many years ago. What a coincidence that I’d be writing this chapter at the same time the colonists have discovered the fate of Earth? Still, it’s certainly helping me to ‘get in the mood’.
31 days to go.
