Wow. Sometimes you don’t even realise how long you’ve done something until you start having a lot of it.
Arctic Gale is now over 90 (word) pages! It’s still a far cry from finished, or from a KS path, but damn; next weekend I could possibly get into triple digits.
I also think, in some ways, that this is the end of the current “Act” – maybe Act 2, or Act 3. It’s a little harder to think of these things, however those of you that are reading should hopefully feel a shift in where things are going.
It also marks 20 complete chapters, although they appear to be, on average, shorter than the 2000-ish words that made up the scenes in KS. I’m sure that this will change though when I go back and polish everything up.
I’m also now in a quandary, because I have either unintentionally or subconsciously opened up a possibility that I didn’t really want to look into. For those of you that are actually reading the story I will say no more, but please feel free to conjecture in the comments on the page.
Anyway, here is a photo from my balcony. You can clearly see the reduction in the brightness of the sky between the two rainbows, which just happened to occur at the “Golden Hour” minutes before sunset.
