It's Friday? Already? O.o Did someone speed up time on me again?

ARML -- Draft four is complete (yay!) and draft five is in progress. I'm a little nervous about character revisions because I've never done an entire draft focused entirely on them before, but it's a learning experience.

Summer Fling -- 42k! WHOOO! Still not halfway, I have a feeling this is going to be a longer one. Maybe about 70k all told.

I also had an SNI yesterday. A very nagging SNI. I'm trying to push it to the back of my mind to simmer while I work on SF, but it doesn't seem to want to go. I'd start writing it except I only have the MC and very little plot. I'll figure it out eventually.

Everyone have an awesome weekend!
