The same event I attended where this new story became full fledged, I also decided how to finish the story I shelved in order to work on Forlorn Hope. I already had about 5,000 words written when I was unsure if it was going to be a sequel to Body Rentals. A moderate rewrite is needed to bring it into the new outline. I’m also gonna write it from a first person perspective. It only makes sense to do so based on the direction of the story.
I hope it doesn’t get much larger than 10,000 words, but we will see. It looks like summer 2013 will produce a novella and two novelettes. Classes start on 2013-07-30 so that gives me only four weeks to finish both stories.
