The title may change--too many books with "dragon" in their titles--but the novel is rapidly approaching the end. Well, the end of the beginning.
Book One will be about 140,000 words, not as many as the original incarnation, but hopefully enough to envelope the reader in my world.
I'm on Part Four today, still tweaking a few things, re-incorporating old material that was too good to throw away but didn't quite fit in the original. I like to experiment, do things I'm told can't be done. (Just ornery that way, I guess.) I'm looking forward to getting some feedback on the updated manuscript, see if the experiment works.
