"The Almost-Finished World, a 70,000 word YA steampunk/fantasy novel, set in an unfinished world, features Magnus Rivera, who is hired by a clandestine society to find the next ‘Brilliance’—a genius that emerges each century to introduce a life-changing innovation such as magic or steam power—before the year five-hundred, when the newest technology will be revealed and the planet completes its creation process."
I'm pretty excited about it.
I've also decided to change my writing quota system. Instead of having a daily word quota, I'm setting a weekly goal. That way if I miss day, I can make it up the next. For now, it's 3600 words per week. Which means I should be done writing in May. Honestly, I think I'll finish before then. 3600 words is fairly lax, and I should be able to exceed it a lot of weeks.
