    • Thank you! I’m two scenes from finishing the fifth draft of “Paradisa”. Beta Round 2 will hopefully begin within the next month or so. I’ll be giving a call for betas soon if you’re interested :)

      As for “Wake”, I renamed it “Figments” shortly before starting it. I got about 7000 words in during NaNoWriMo but wasn’t feeling it. I want to return to the project eventually, but it wasn’t ready to be written at the time. Trying to write “Figments” felt like trying to learn how to perform Rush’s “Tom Sawyer” after only one drumming lesson. It’s beyond my abilities, for now.

      “Goliath” is done, and I ought to start submitting it places. Perhaps I should give it a glance and see if I’m still happy with it.
