My update for this week is focused entirely on Independent Flight.
The rough draft is almost complete. Last night I started writing a final action scene before the denouement – there’s going to be gunplay in a confined space surrounded by vacuum. For those of you who think that DOESN’T sound like a very good time: You’re right.
Writing this novella has been a very interesting experience. Novellas are their own creature – they’re not short stories and they’re not novels. They’re something else entirely, with their own demands for pacing, exposition, and characterization.
I’m planning to finish the rough draft in the next day or two and get back to The Crossworlds Affair.
