Still working on that combat scene, but it’s going much better.
Almost at the end, but I ran out of time today. The interesting decision I made over the weekend was to revise Upgrade’s targets; I think it’s going to be longer than Night’s Favour, and with the complexity of the story it’s going to take me a bit longer to do it.
I’m kind of pleased about that; I was talking with my better half last night, and I really want Upgrade to be a more aspirational work than Night’s Favour. I already know it’s going to be harder to write though – not because of the moving parts, sure, that’s a thing, but because in this one there’s a lot more collateral damage.
It’s almost time for me to set off for Italy, so be prepared: for over a month, I’m going to be spending more time drinking than writing. I think this is ok, because the net effect will be a recharged approach to writing when I’m back. Also, it’s Italy.
See you tomorrow.
