The first sentence I wrote today…

As she waited with Richard for the airlock to cycle and let them through into the Sanctification, Emily slipped her laser pistol from its holster.

Another very SFfish sentence to start with today, what with a cycling airlock and a laser pistol, to boot.

Changed directions in mid-scene today and had to go back and add a couple of paragraphs to a previous (my typo-prone blogging fingers originally wrote “precious,” but fortunately, it wasn’t) scene to set up what I wanted to do. So again, I actually wrote more words than this, but I dumped a bunch of them.

Good progress, anyway!

Oh, and a new milestone: the properly formatted version of the book in Word now runs over 400 manuscript pages. I think that’s a personal length record.

Not that longer is necessarily better, even though about half the spam I receive would have you think otherwise.
