Milestones

If you count the parts of the first Brigid and Greg novel that have already been written (in the form of Fictionlets), I've already got 8,000 words.

Not bad, actually. :) Of course, most of those will need some editing and revising to smooth them together (and at least one needs to be shifted to third person from first), so it's not like 8,000 "finished" words, but 8,000 words of rough draft.

Also, going through the Fictionlets, I am starting to see which ones are likely to be in the second novel, and some elements of its plot starting to take shape.

I know, I know, I'm supposed to be getting that Suburban Jungle treasury published. But dang it, it's been so long since I finished a novel! I'm jonesing for it in a big way. And while the other novel project I started last year simmers for a while, it's a good time to start cranking this one out.

The hardest part of writing a B&G novel, is going to be writing stuff and not posting it. After ten years of doing webcomics, I've gotten rather dependent on the instant feedback. I have a few beta readers, tho, so hopefully they'll have some useful things to say.

I admit it ... I'm excited!
