An update on my writing: I finally reached the end of the story! Last chapter's close is at just over the 114K words mark, at this point.

Note that I don't say I've finished the first draft. Not yet! I have to go back and fill in a bunch of interstitial bits that I skipped over. Plus, I know I need to rewrite about two chapters straight off in order to get a coherent draft.

That rewrite will probably shorten things up, again, so that the first draft will be about 115-120K words. Not bad. I can then see about editing it down to around 100K to tighten things up.

Re: Speaking of stories...

I don't have any extra copies, at the moment, so you'll want to contact patch_bunny. He's the one that handles shipping out tapes.

Any place that we can see copies of any of your writing?

Re: Novel

There's my book, my website, and, of course, this journal. But (with the semi-exception of LJ) that's non-fiction. Oddly enough, I don't have any of my fiction online at the moment.

Re: Novel

Was wondering if you would be interested in a beta reader (for your fiction that is).

Re: Novel

Possibly. I've got some people lined up already. Thanks for the offer; I'll keep it in mind.
