For my 100th post, I would like to announce that I've begun writing Mercury.
Already about 1500 words in.
I'd love to finish the first draft before Thanksgiving. The first draft of Venus took five weeks, so I think it's a doable goal. We'll see, I guess.
My long-term goal is to get the trilogy published by midsummer. That may be too ambitious, though. Again: we'll see.
