I've neglected to post for too long. I'm busy editing for a couple of early beta readers, trimming down those words. Still a long way to go to reach my Seemingly Impossible Goal (SIG) of 200,000 words.
I finaled in the writing contest I entered, which is very good news, indeed. I'll post more details about that in a few months, when I can do so publicly. Meanwhile, I advance to the next round.
