I should update my pagecount tab but I’ve been slacking there as well. Still, I got a couple thousand words done and I think I’m at the 2/3rd point (? Maybe?).
I still don’t know if what I’m writing is simplistic crap or if it’s the best stuff I’ve written. I honestly don’t. I’m going to be leaning on the Wordslingers a lot for this story. I like it but I’m partial. It might be too slow, since it really is as much about the worldbuilding as it is about problem Ahmed my protagonist has.
It’s funny how you can become fond of a character. Like Jacob in Angel Odyssey, I just like Ahmed. He’s trying so hard to be a man (even though he’s eight) and to do the right thing. Even though he’s scared, even though he’s hurt. I hope that’s all coming through. I guess I’ll see next week.
Hopefully I’ll finish the story off tonight and then I can get busy sending a bunch of stories out. I’ve been slacking there, too. I think I only have three stories awaiting rejection right now. Then I have Smooth Vengeance to work on and the edit and submission for feedback for Mageborn Mechanic…
Ah well. Good stuff.
