So it's finally managed to rain over here at 13ºN, and the lands have cooled moderately enough. Oh, it's still hot and annoyingly so, but, a tolerable hot. Anyways, just thought I'd make a little mention that over the weekend (well Friday, really) I managed to complete my work in progress, Bengaria's War.
Okay, it's still only the first draft and needs a lot more work done to it to polish it off and smooth out the rough edges before I send it off to my beta readers, but the point is, is that it's DONE! And now, I simply can't wait to dive back into it and get started on the polishing. Alas, the real world interuptus, and so I have to respond to it in order to survive in the real world...which really sucks...the work, not the real world, although, that's debatable.
Of course, as I typed up the last sentence and the last few words in Bengaria's War, I still couldn't decide how to end it. You see, I've sort of come up with an alternative ending, and I may stick it to my beta readers and ask them which ending they would prefer. Oh, the decisions! Both endings are good (or will be, once I create the alternate ending) but that means I've cornered myself into a sequel...depending on which ending works better for people. And, if the sequel version is chosen, then I've now got to come up with a convincing tale for it.
Anyways, we shall see. Don't worry, I'll keep you in the loop...
Well, that's all for now. If you're curious about what Bengaria's War is all about, click up on the WIPs tab on this site and check it out.
