So, the Anne McCaffrey essay commissioned by BenBella has been written and delivered; I’ve signed all the tip-in pages for the autographed edition of Necessity’s Child; the short story commissioned for Baen’s website has been written and delivered; today I finished reading the galleys for Necessity’s Child, and have emailed my correx to the appropriate folken.
Y’all know what that means, don’t you?
Now, I get to
put on a new head read the first 70,000-ish words of Carousel Sun, and get with writing the rest. I have a soft deadline of December 31. The manuscript is actually due at Baen on February 15, 2013. I’m figuring that means writing about 1,000 words a day, minimum, which isn’t so bad.
This also assumes that nothing else requiring me to think outside of Archers Beach occurs from now until the end of the year.
…yeah, that’s gonna happen.
Everybody having a good holiday?
