Progress Report, in which I discuss geological time scales

So I said last week that I thought I was missing something important about Petra Rising.  Turns out my instincts were correct.  Something was missing, and I believe I have found it.  And guess where it was?  Right in front of my face.  As usual.

I’m encouraged.  When the story starts resolving itself, that’s a sign that it’s working.  And interestingly enough, I now am pretty sure I know how this thing will end—a rarity akin to rain in the Sahara.

So I’m close to actual drafting work.  Yes, I realize I keep saying that, but it’s true.  It’s gonna be soon.  On a geological time scale, it’ll happen in the blink of an eye.

Of course, on a geological time scale, most things happen in the blink of an eye.  So what?  Shut up.

Write Club update:  17 days to a personal note from F & SF.  So it goes.
