It's done! It's done! It's done!
There, now it's out. ;)
In Memory Of, in case you're not clear what we've talking about here, is complete in rough draft form at 48,614 words (just shy of 200 pages). I'm pretty sure I threw in a fair chunk of garbage over the last few days as I ordered it to get done, but I was on the verge of losing confidence and getting muddled up with it, so I had to just get something out. Also went back and wrote a new opening because the first stopped making sense. There's a lot of editing to do, but that can wait for November.
Next up in the fiction area: the new short story rough, a rewrite of "Internal Affair" (a short story from a few months back), a rewrite of Bad Luck Boy and some queries to publishers... and hopefully another short story or two, and that'll round out October quite nicely.
Been neglecting the nonfic a bit, but my shift tomorrow got canceled, so barring unforeseen obstacles, I should get at least one article done tomorrow.
