Novel Writing Update 11-17-22

Novel update 11-17-22, or: slow and steady wins the race? Or: Please welcome Chapters 25 & 26 to the manuscript, and a likely new title: Dweller as well as some cool AI-assisted cover art for fun and to help me visualize the finished product, of course almost no chance my art would ever be used when it’s published.

(Words continued below pics)

Each of the chapters have been finished for a while, and there are words on the page for Chapter 27. When I finish a chapter, I print it out & add it to a physical manuscript so I have a sense the novel exists outside of the abstraction of a thing that lives on a computer. The word count is now over 120,000.

I hope to finish soon. I know it’s a slow motion marathon but Sheesh! Not saying more about it, but I am hopeful I’ll finish soon, more than 11 years after starting. A lot of life in 11 years. Onward.
