Thursday night, I finished "Scorpion", which clocks in at 68,908 words at the moment. (So much for "it's probably a novella"). I've just written a 1,800 word synopsis and am giving the text a polish. Since my first drafts are pretty clean anyway, I might finish this weekend or week, depending how well it goes, and send it off before I fly out to the States.
That means I'll return to "Iron Cross" and can then power through with that.
Yeah, feeling accomplished. Excerpts soon to follow, now need to update the website.
