Update on Writing Progress

So what I had planned to be a novella in the 20K word range is taking on a life of it's own. My rough draft is already a few pages longer than the Blue Lady and I'm still firmly in the beginning of the story. I would be unsurprised if the final word count for the rough draft is closer to 50K and my rough drafts are always shorter than my later drafts (because I work out plot and characters first then flesh out the rest). What this means is that for the foreseeable future posts with new fiction will be few and far between unless I get an idea stuck in my head.
