Bowling with Aliens - Finished!

Finished at ~47,000 words, making it about 10k words shorter than I had expected. I am very happy to have finished a month earlier than my goal! It turned out that the closer that I got to the end, the more I could/wanted to write at once. My next project is to due a thorough edit of the Catechumen, which has a completed first draft but which I believe may need some consistency editing.

Bowling With Aliens

I'm at just over 18,000 words, and getting to the part where she actually has to make some decisions, instead of running around like a frightened rabbit. I got to tap slightly on my knowledge of South American exploration (for ruins), so that was fun. I've joined a guild on Gaia that is all about pledging to reach such and such words by the end of the summer. I've pledged 60,000 for this story, because I don't think it will be that long and I can easily do that.
