I still aten’t dead 🙂
Currently engaged in writing the conclusion to the Lady Aiella saga … some readers may recall an earlier iteration of this in which the lady was taken a bit dead. To say this was not popular is an understatement … nobody liked the idea, and the only excuse I can offer is that I was in a very bad mood at the time.
I have been persuaded by my Muse to write it again – only now the assassin misses her target, Aiella lives, and the subsequent events are very different – and a much better story. The previous work isn’t entirely wasted, I can recycle parts of it into the new story – quite fun, reconfiguring situations and dialogue into a new context.
The old story was approaching 30k words when abandoned .. but I think this one will be even longer!
