Good: The rest of the Aphra novel is basically outlined, and I know most of what happens...

Bad: ...except for the climax, currently listed as "and then they do a thing."

Good: I like writing by the seat of my pants, and if I thought I knew what the climax looked like I'd be wrong anyhow.

Good: I've finished writing the annoying-but-necessary transitional bit before sh*t hits f*n for the rest of the book.  (Annoying to me, hopefully not annoying to readers.)

Bad: I've looked over how long scenes have taken on average, so far, and have counted up remaining scenes, and that's a longer book than I thought.  Which means either busier writing nights, or a busier editing season--because Baby M's birth date is not going to be affected by whether I've finished my other big projects.

Good: I find deadlines very motivating.

Fingers crossed.

I finished The Litany of Earth an hour ago and was deeply impressed with it as both an excellent and powerful story and a story that perfectly reworks Lovecraft's mythos. I just found your lj, and to see that there will be a novel with the same character makes me even happier. I very much look forward to it.

I'm glad you liked the story! Finishing up edits on the novel some time in the next couple of weeks--then "just" need to find a publisher.
