Still fumbling

I decided to work on Percy the Space Chimp today. Getting both these stories flowing has taken me more time than I anticipated.

Honestly, since Percy involves a sequel, I thought it would be up and running a little faster. I feel the need to at least do some minor reintroductions of the characters, because there could be someone out there who reads them months apart.

Prejudice is one thing that kind of sets Percy off, so that’s where I went. It allowed me to revisit his relationship with Buffer Dole, and the clones got some page time, too. They managed to obtain their course from the spy network and avoided throttling the crap out of some people.

All I have to do is get them to their ship and send them into the unclaimed part of the galaxy.

I might have been better served to get my Earth based science fiction tale to the point where it’s really flowing before starting Percy back up. Doesn’t matter now, because they’re both underway.

It came to a little over 1000 words today, but I might take a crack at some more this evening. Old What’s Her Face is watching Harry Potter once again, and I’ve kind of seen enough of it.

I’m generally used to higher word counts than I’ve been getting lately, and my winter break might not have been the best idea.

Either way, this is where I am right now. Might even get a small chance tomorrow. Hope all of you are safe from the major storms and getting to do something fun.
