The Novel: Update #2

Well, progress has been patchy. I’ve realised I’m going to have to reduce my evening based plans during the week to keep up my morning regime without dying of sleepy.

Did I mention I’m a cat?

Nevertheless, managed almost-5am-starts yesterday and today. I’ve been working on the opening of the book, where we meet a key protagonist named Audrey. She’s a young, generally quite rule-abiding scientist engaged in important genetics research for her city. She is also an idealistic criminal working on an idiosyncratic plan involving a clone, a genetic modification pod, and a wormhole.

It’s been interesting writing Audrey — as opposed to planning her — because she’s turning out to be kind of a smart-arse in ways I hadn’t anticipated, which will be fun to play with… and to try and avoid getting carried away with!

Chat soon,
