…working on the first draft of a new story now titled ‘To Rule the Sky’. (The title only emerged late last night, towards the end of the draft. I take it as a good sign when the title emerges from the writing.) During the writing I’ve been thinking of it as a literary adventure fantasy. The second draft will focus on emphasising the stories theme and polishing the characters. Length should remain about the same at 5981 words. I’m hoping to submit first to either Fantasy and Science Fiction or Beneath Ceaseless Skies.
The first draft took nine days, including both weekends. (Weekends being my most productive writing time.) My target was to complete it in seven, to finish by this friday so I’ve gone over slightly.
I haven’t decided what story to work on next. I have an emerging sense of a very near future SF story but don’t know the details yet.
That is all.
