I’m still plugging-away on the novel. Progress hasn’t been anywhere near as fast I would have liked, however some progress is better than no progress. Currently I’ve finished rewriting the first six or so chapters and once I knock-out a couple more then I’ll look at passing these on to a couple of trusted readers to get some feedback. The first chapter is somewhat mercurial… I can’t quite seem to nail the tone I’m looking for but that’s the nature of first chapters. I’ll get there eventually.
When I get tired of working on the novel I have been rewriting and polishing some of my old unpublished short stories in the hopes of getting them out there sometime next year. There’s no point having them sit in my WIP folder for eternity, right?
