I said that I'd be coming out with another "Settled Dust" piece right away, huh? Well, it may be a while. I've elected to write a novella "on spec" for a deadline that's just way, way too close. I'm probably going to be fairly quiet on the Hawkcircle front for the next month. For that, readers, I apologize. I'll make it up to you somehow, I suppose.

I'll try to squeeze in a poem here and there, if I can. I'll probably be early next month before another issue of "Settled Dust" comes out. In the meantime, wish me luck on the novella. I'll need it.

No need to apologize - get to work on that novella! Of course I wish you luck but your a pro bro. So just do the work and it will come out good.

I'm plugging away at it. I'm at 7,200 words right now, and the length is 20K-30K. I'm hoping to hit 10K tonight.

Thanks for the well-wishes. Hope things are going well for you, also.

Amazing stuff here, Patrick. And to think you're doing this as well as writing a novella. Very impressive.

I didn't think that I'd be able to squeeze another "Settled Dust" out until after the deadline, but I somehow managed to do it. I'm glad you like it. I'm hoping to have a marketable product with "Dust" when I finally get it all done. One never knows.
