I am writing The Orphan Girl, and I am close to the end. Right now the draft is at 2600 words, and I have one or two scenes left. So it is safe to say that it will be longer than 3000 words, since each scene has been 600-800 words so far.
I am glad I decided to write it, though, since it is clarifying things to me for both Daughter of the Dark and the fourth novella. I am also looking forward to settle in and begin revising Daughter of the Dark in July.
The plan is for the rest of the serial go up during the next two weeks, while I am off travelling. Then I work one week, and then I am on vacation for three weeks. Yay!
