I checked my wordcount on Blood and Taxes over lunch--because I knew I'd written a lot yesterday, but I wasn't sure how much--and holy cow! I wrote 5,000 words yesterday! I figure I'll be done with the book within about 10,000 words. I do worry that the main character is awfully passive throughout most of the book, and I'm a little concerned about the pacing, but those are things I can address when I revise. For now: onward!
I got my print version of MindFlights issue #4 yesterday. It's very nice, and you can read my story "Gaming Real Life" on actual paper inside it! There are other stories and some poems in the issue too; I've read several of them, and they're a lot of fun.
