Six-Bits (working title): First draft

There's a new trilogy in the works, and the first book is done.  That is to say, the first draft of the first book is done.  It took about 7 months, which is slower than I'd like, but work and life and adulting are taking up a lot of time.  What can you do?

The working title is "Six-Bits", but I might change that to something like "Shipwright & Six-Bits" because a lot of the story is told from the point of view of Mell, the shipwright from the previous trilogy.

I'm going to let it sit for a week or two, then start with a first round of edits.  When I'm more or less satisfied, it'll be time to start the second book in the trilogy.  

I wrote the previous trilogy all in one go (not publishing anything until it was all done) and that really made things easier.  So I think I'm going to do that again.  It means a lot longer (another year? two?) before the whole trilogy is ready to go, but I think it's worth it.

I'll keep you posted on what happens next!
