I'm also sci-fi/promotion/repairman.  Tonight is basically my only time to write, so ... I don't expect to be stiff competition to anyone. :-)

How's everyone doing today? Progress report?  I'm short of the word count and could probably use them, but I'm going to submit it as is. Sci-fi is not my forte, but I figure anything helps keep the writing muscles from completely atrophying.  I want them to work in 30 years when my kids are grown and I'm retired!

I'm struggling to start... that crucial first sentence.

I’m done. 1499 words. I think I really like it! Now it’s time for some betas to change my mind. LOL

I have a second draft with some final beta comments to act on when I get hom. Not in love with it, but the thought of starting again is just...no.

Do we have a count of how many forumites there are in this round? It's been eerily quiet!

I have a rough draft.  And I feel like all this research I've done will not matter in the slightest because this is literally the most boring thing I've ever written. LOL   Why did I have to jinx myself and say I didn't want historical fiction?!

SciFi, Promotion, a Repairman

This one was definitely an exercise... I find SciFi worldbuilding under 1500 words to be super challenging lol so we shall see!

You're not alone :) Same heat and mine was a last-minute write, and then I ended up 800 words over. You can do it!!
