Estimated final page count: 350-400.
Deadline: None. Purely speculative. Not yet submitted anywhere in any form, let alone contracted.
Comments: I didn’t actually add anything new to this, as you’ll see from the entries above, but I did haul it out, look it over, put it in a modern format, etc.
I had originally intended to post the opening scene to my blog, along with the twenty-three others I’ve put there so far, but I realized that it’s out of date. I wrote that scene in… 1987, maybe? A long time ago, anyway. And some of the tech on my starship’s bridge is already becoming obsolete, so I’ll need to rewrite that scene.
For that matter, I had to do some research on just how wrong the tech was, and what would happen to more modern tech in the situation I described. So I did the research, which I think justifies a progress report even if I didn’t do any actual writing yet.
