I got a bit distracted over the past week, or is it two, but I finally finished PI #3. First draft clocks in at 7400 words. I feel it's one of the best things I've written to date. There is one scene - a very important one - that will probably need some heavy editing, but I was trying something that I normally don't do. I'm going to let it sit until Saturday or Sunday, edit it, do another draft, then send it along to my friend the editor. Depending on his reaction, this might be one I try to submit to Thrilling Detective.
On a blog note, I'm going to try to get the Welles bio review up on Friday. If not, it will certainly be up on Monday or Wednesday of next week.
