The Ria story is about two-thirds done, I think. At least, Microsoft Word tells me that what I have is already near the target word count, but about a third of those words are notes and sketches toward scenes I haven't really fleshed out yet, and notes I haven't deleted yet but probably don't need anymore. When I've built the structure enough to take the scaffolding off, the word count will probably be about the same, if the process of writing the Ghost Tours story is any basis for prediction. Surely I can transmute about 8,000 words of notes into about 10,000 words of storytelling in 31 days. Surely.
So I've been looking over the draft, making plans and breaking the big task (finish manuscript!) into smaller, day-sized chunks (Scene 4, Ria decontaminates hexed refrigerator; Scene 10, the Asatru neighbors' Seidhr ritual goes awry).
Oh, and somehow, I need to get my head back into the anthology for a few days before CoyoteCon starts, because I absolutely cannot let that project drop for the month of May, and the gravitational pull of the conference is mighty.
