Well, in an effort to waste time, I figured I'd do another blog post.
First, a thanks to those readers who are sticking with the current story. It's running around 1700 on SOL, and another 1700+ on ASSTR. A new record for a multi chapter tale! I will warn you that I'm not sure if I'll be able to get a second chapter out before the usual Friday deadline (when my editor goes off the clock). The story is moving into a new phase, so I can't just pad things with sex scenes (yes, I know, boo, hiss).
This is a good time to remind everyone that I'm writing this without a plan. Oh, I have ideas, things I'm foreshadowing, plots I want to get to. But, I could tomorrow decided this is it and bring it to a close. Actually, while it won't happen that soon, at some point I probably will pause, either to take a rest or to do another story. If I'm not having fun, it doesn't matter if you're having fun. For now, though, onward ho!
