Well, it’s officially mid-August and I think I’m about a half-a-scene further on than I was when I hit 100,000 words in Neon Blue and got all foolishly optimistic about when it might be done. That’ll teach me.
On the bright side, most of that time has been spent on Lure and, surprisingly, Stars Avail, which I haven’t touched in eons and then all of a sudden I began dreaming scenes in Book II where Hauser and the cyborgs are contacted by the AI, Aiero. Those scenes are miles ahead of where I’ve written up to, but I’ve learned my lesson about fucking with the muse, so I’ve skipped ahead and written them out. Hopefully when I do catch up to them they’ll fit in and make some sort of sense.
Now it’s time to really buckle down and get cranking on Neon Blue. End of August. For real.
