Today, for the first time, I managed to finish a complete draft of a chapter from my book Monster Hunters, Dinosaur Lovers: Speculative Fiction in the Culture Wars. It clocks in at about 6,800 words, which isn’t bad considering that I had fewer than 2,000 words’ worth of blogging to start with.
The chapter focuses on humorous SF/F. It’s a bit loose in terms of subject, but it rounds up some stories that I was having trouble slotting in elsewhere, so I’m happy with it.
On a related note, I’ve also had an idea that’ll drastically simplify one of the other chapters in the book. Which means that the Six Nebulous Chapters (as I have come to think of them) are now the Five Nebulous Chapters. Score!
