Accomplished in fiction: To the skies, where perils lurk. We had a little tension among the crew and an attempt to make peace got cut short when, pardon my French, all hell broke loose.
Accomplished in life: Not much yet, but the party starts in two hours and I’ve got to help clean and prepare.
Other: It has come to my attention that this story might run past fifty thousand words, maybe upwards to sixty thousand. I’m evaluating the outline and I’ll marinate on how and where to cut material, but I think I’ll probably write it all and cut in round two.
