Explanation for J-A’s silence

Yes, I’ve been rather quiet, not having written a thing for the whole of September.  The explanation is that I’m almost finished BattleFall!  I’ve only got half a chapter left to go before I can take a break and then start the second draft.  Not sure how many words it is, but it’s not 100k (no fantasy book worth its salt is under 100k).  That’s not a bad thing, though, because I tend to underwrite.  I get the bare bones down first and then work on it in redrafting. 

I find the first draft is a bit of a drag, but I’m excited about the second draft!  Anyhow, back to that half a chapter…

    Hey, take as long as you like J-A. Getting that draft completed is the big thing. We’ll still be here when you re-emerge.
