“Second Contact” finished

I’ve finally finished my fourth “story” for the the Clarion West Write-a-thon, nearly a week late. I won’t get the six stories done this time, I fear, but at least I’m producing more material to send out into the cold, cruel world. This one is a collaboration with Jay Lake that began many years ago and was abandoned due to novel deadlines and health issues. But I always really liked it, and the write-a-thon was a great excuse to tackle it again.

It’s a monster, though, coming in at 22,000 words. Be interesting to see if we can sell it. If not, we’ll just have to make an e-book out of it. 🙂

  1. Congratulations, Ruth! There’s a particular sense of accomplishment with renovating something that fell by the wayside, I find.

    As for not making the “six-stories goal,” keep looking at that half-full glass, and celebrate!

    Have a great week!
