I finished the crude draft of Stand Against the Light. Great relief is felt! There are some very short continuity pieces that need to go in, earlier in the text, events that would be tedious if brought on-camera. However, that is inserting fragments of different sorts, not creating a scene from scratch.
As I’ve mentioned my books on game design are my best sellers. I also recently became President of AHIKS, the Avalon Hill Intercontinental Kriegspiel Society, the oldest and largest non-local board wargame club. My most recent effort was a total rebuild of AHIKS.com, the AHIKS web site. You can see it at http://AHIKS.com. Alas, the National Fantasy Fan Federation (oldest non-local SF club) needs a matching rebuild. Writing is making slow progress.
Rearranged sections between Stand Against the Light and Of Breaking Waves. Wrote 700 words. These are Eclipse 3 and Eclipse 4, now at 98600 and 30500 words, respectively. There is light visible on Eclipse 3, and I don’t think it is a railroad train coming down the tunnel. Perhaps made some progress on the wordpress install.
Of these, Eclipse 3 and 4 interleave a bit, in that the end of Eclipse 3 happens after the beginning of Eclipse 4, so I get to work on both of them. Not quite at the end of Eclipse 3, she suffers the inconvenience of dying, but she is backby the end of the book. (That’s an antispoiler. I conclude that readers would prefer to keep reading if they know in advance that she avoids certain negative medical issues, such as having her body turned to incandescent plasma.) (Yes, I loaded a shotgun way back at the start of book 1: Eclipse-The Girl Who Saved the World.)
I recently became President of AHIKS, the Avalon Hill International Kriegspiel Society. I have been busy getting some changes made, but that is slowing down.
This weekend I also have a different writing/editing effort, namely generating an issue of Tightbeam (N3F Zine, founded 1959).
