Picking Up Speed Again

Too early to say for sure whether I can catch up or get ahead of the pace, but I've definitely picked up speed this morning. I've done all I could for now on the middle grade story and have moved back to an adult story in a world I've played with in the past, but never written a full story for. So while noodling around with plot and character, the word count is climbing. So far I'm playing with backstory and motivation, which probably won't make it to the final draft. I'm also toying with characters to see who is in this story, which could have quite a supporting cast.

Assuming that I can make it, I suspect I shall, by Nov 30, draft another fairy story that was begun years ago and try to draft a quick gen ship story that is an extrapolation of something I scribbled years ago. Both in known worlds.
