I’m about two-thirds away from finishing Chapter Eleven, right now. The story’s beginning to take a better form for a first draft, which is always good. I’m awaiting the customary bitchslap from my editor on Chapter Ten, though, and so I’m sure that we’ll go through this chapter with a finetoothed comb.

By the way, you short-attention-span fanfic writers who think that 600 to 1,000 words is a long story? 71,093 words, bitches. I took a look at NaNoWriMo. I’d join, but I want to finish Knight Commander, first. Maybe if I finish this by November 1st, I can start working on Knightfall or another Hope story. That would be cool, to put a 50,000 word dent into another story in 30 days. Shit, I think I could bang out 50,000 words in under 2 weeks. It would be an insanely crappy 50,000 words, but I think I could do it.
