I've got over 75,000 words written for Hostile Planet. I'm nearly done. I expected to finish this draft by August, and I can still do that.
This one's a little more bloody than stuff I've written in the past. I suppose that's what happens when you give your main character a sword. :o
Hopefully, by the time I'm done, my brain will be refreshed enough to tackle the Free Space books with renewed vigor.
