Of Monsters and Men


I just love that "word." Anyway, the first draft of the sequel to The Divine World is "officially" done. Comes out around 27,000 words, which is - I dunno - 105 pages of 8X11 paper? I'll spend the rest of the month going through the notes and cleaning it up, but the story is basically done, so there won't be any worries about a major re-write of some aspect. Probably.

Smiley emoticon.

Yeah, I wrote "smiley emoticon" instead of inserting a "smiley emoticon." Just because.

It's short because, as I think I've said, I'm trying something different. I'm going to write the stories out as a serial rather than as a series of novels. This means the stories will be shorter, but more focused, with less filler material. "Of Monsters and Men" is basically 24 hours in the life of David Arris on a mission that goes wrong - again - once the supernatural elements of the world intrude. And Nereika has her own timeline separate from Arris'.
