Writing in Public: Day 18, Month 02

“The Lone Blue Strand” is finished, and ready to get sent out the door. I’m going to have a couple of people read over it to see if there are any glaring errors I missed, and then it’s off to Penumbra before the end of the their deadline. Took a bit longer than I thought it would to finish. From the brainstorming phase to the final touches it was around 13 hours, with a total of 18,671 words written, rewritten, coaxed, teased, tortured, and condensed down into a final count of 3,368. That might change a little bit as I get feedback, but the final tally should be between 3,300 and 3,400.

Steampunk is not what I typically write, but it is a lot of fun. Hoping to do more!

Unfortunately the day job had me busy for longer than I wanted (Isn’t it like that for everyone?) so no more progress was made on two other pieces I want to get wrapped up soon. I’ll be devoting as much of tomorrow as possible to those tales, and we’ll see where we go from there!
