Still puttering with this new idea. About two and a half chapters (3800 words) into it at the moment. My poor original baby is sitting there, looking at me forlornly, saying "Why don't you love me anymore?" Ah well. I needed the break, and now I'm kinda anxious to see where this other thing takes me.
I've worked on my original story for the last three years (off and on with many months of lost time in the middle), and I have always been of the mindset that it would take me a year at least to write a book entire (y'know, really WORKING at it). I have the sneaking feeling that this one I just started wouldn't take that long. I'm kinda curious to see if I'm right.
