Sorry for the lack of updates, everyone! I’m writing in so many other groups that I completely forgot to update here.
I’m up to 7681 words, which is really not great considering that puts me at about 12 WPM. As this is a rewrite of something I rapidly drafted, I’m spending most of my time researching and worldbuilding. Today I wrote a conversation translated bilaterally in real time by a translator which has to provide multiple potential interpretations when there isn’t enough context, so that was really fun. Extremely slow, but fun!
My main fear is that all my research will end up reading like an encyclopedia to my readers, but it’s the kind of thing I like reading and writing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
