My claims of “first draft compete!” earlier this week were slightly premature. Since then I’ve done some additional fiddling and formatting and only NOW have a proper first draft.
Quite a respectable length, really – about 25,000 words short of Dune. Whether the quality is worth speaking about remains to be seen!
Two copies have been ordered from Lulu.com, which I will be passing to a couple of people for ther informed opinion.
Meanwhile, I’m off to Eurogamer next Saturday, down in London. Should be fun. The day after I begin another novel, because I’m slightly mad, and also because it’s NaNoWriMo month.
