I gave into the muse and wrote it. Mostly wrote it. I'm currently on chapter 32 of a planned 34 chapters. Whew. 76,000+ words so far, and so much more to go back and add to this space opera.
I know so much more about this story--Tragedy of Ice--now that I've expanded on what I dreamed up during a nap in February. So much, in fact, that I may be able to go directly into editing after I finish the raw draft. Heck, I may even try to self-publish this story this year just to see if I can do the turnaround. :)
Alrighty, now that I've checked in with you all, I'm going to duck out and try to finish this raw draft this weekend. I'll try to check back in next weekend to get back on a normal schedule for updates.
Ash Litton is a writer and lover of sci-fi, fantasy, and all things fictional. She is the author of Thoroughbred, Evening Hallow, Comeuppance, and Cabover Cabaret, and works on other Appalachian Dream Tales between her ongoing novel projects. She's also written No Diet, No Surgery, No Sweat, an ebook chronicling her weight-loss journey.
When she's not writing, she's drawing, and when she's not doing either of those, she's dreaming up new projects to work on. Born and raised in rural West Virginia, Ash has always wondered what things lay hidden in the hills around her. She attended West Virginia University, where she studied the English language before returning home to her family in rural West Virginia.
