As for Rise of the Phoenix, revisions are coming along alright. I'm up to chapter 5, which brings me to a new total of 17,700-ish rewritten/revised words. My friend Kristin, who is absolutely amazing, got my first chapter back to me with notes (no she isn't a writer, but she reads A LOT), so chapter 1 is done. I think. It's pretty good right now, and it's going to stay how it is until the rest of draft 2 is complete.
The other idea I've been playing with is still toying with me. I haven't started actually writing it (ah the beauty of will power), but I have started writing about it. I'm trying to outline this one, flush out the major plot points and the details of the world and creatures, and it is SO much fun. I love it.
In other news, I submitted a short story (the only decent one I've ever written) to my school's literary journal, so we'll see how that goes.
How are things going for you? Making any progress or is life bogging you down?
