You can do it.

108k - Admiral's Throne

Looks like you're close to completing another one.

It's slow gong but I'm getting it done, even if it's just one line at a time.

It slowed down on me.  I hope I can pick it up and push it over the finish line!

Must be that Thanksgiving Feast that seems to go on forever with all the leftovers. I know a big meal slows me down.  ;)
Changing meds again. Seems at the end of each year the drug and insurance companies change their prices and what's covered. And of course that damn doughnut hole that costs us a couple grand in the last two months.

Still making progress but it's also still slow. Mostly it's providing insight into actions without going deep into the physics or writing pages of explanation. I'm a bit on the obsessive side about it, and have a tendency to rewrite it until I've gotten it down to a few paragraphs. Often I have to go and read a popular author's book, like David Weber, to remind me a page or two of explanation is not uncommon even from what are considered good writers. I just don't like doing it. Of course there are writer's such as Robert Louis Stevenson and Dorothy Sayers who can make the explanations as entertaining as the stories themselves. Unfortunately, my technical background has a tendency to make my explanations come across as rather dry. And writing humor is not one of my strong suits.

In any case, I am making progress so there is an end in sight, though not on --the proverbial-- paper yet.

You got to be close to the finish.

I got a couple of --what I think are good-- paragraphs done, then got laid up for a week. Hopefully back at it tomorrow.

It took forever and a day but the rough draft clocks in at 144k - Admiral's Throne.

I can't wait to get this thing edited and out the door.  Jeez!

Keep it up.

I'm still working at it though I'm struggling. Just rewrote about three paragraphs.

I've been getting a little bit of writing in each day. Because the fiction has been so difficult with the drugs they have me on, I've started a technical manuscript titled "The Wealth and Health of Civilizations". I work on it when my brain isn't up to the creative levels needed for the fictional work.

I have been making progress on 'Chance in Cold Space', though its been slow. A lot of technical details I have to double check at times to make sure I have it right. Right now I'm just trying to finish the story, though I am cognizant of the pace and tension that's needed for a decent ending.
