Say, how about an update? I’ve already caught up to the wordcount I had prior to axing the ending of the Fantasy Western, but I’m not quite done yet. Part of redoing the end was adding a bit more to certain subplot and character interactions. That’s going well, I think, and I’m trying not to stretch the ending too far out. I’d like to keep this book shorter than the 170k-ish words that Clockwork & Old Gods ended up being. So far it’s sitting at just shy of 70k. That’s a whole hundred thousand words less! Good gods, that first book was a monster, wasn’t it?
