I just finished the first draft of Lizardfic. Hooray!
It’s hard SF (biology). I have no idea if Analog wants it. They might.
I still need to flesh out the protagonist’s emotional arc and the like, but the first draft is done. It was like grinding out concrete, so I’m relieved. And pleased, although I think I need to relax and take a few days away from it–maybe work on the script–before any attempt to revise further.
Were it not for things like the evil of DST, I’d have a celebratory beer. *shakes fist at DST*
