Howdy, folks.  It's been an interesting week so far: finished posting a novel, and came down with some sort of illness that's slowly killing me.  Well, not killing me, just making me pissy.  Same thing, right?  Anyway, writing junk.

1,874 words drafted (MSWord word count) out of 10,000 (estimated finished length).

Alright, so I mentioned this briefly last week as what I was "probably" working on next.  I continued to slack off like a boss this week, but I'm back in the writing saddle and plugging away at this.  No clue whether that 10k estimation is close or not, but...yeah, maybe I'm a fifth of the way through or so, who the hell knows?  Anywho, this is progressing reasonably, and I'm enjoying writing again after novel-finishing and laziness.  I do very much prefer novels over short stories, but short stories are so much less labor-intensive.  It's both a blessing and a curse.  Well, I'll get this short done and go onto something else that'll take months that I can bore y'all in these things about week in and week out.  I'm still doing a lot of waffling on what it'll be I'll bring the bore with, though.  Meh, that's for future bats to worry about!  Present bats has other stuff to do...like write horseysmut.  The hell sorta hobby is this again?

TTFN.
