1) I revised 8 chapters so far this week! Yay!
2) I just finished Ch 11 (of 33), so I'm a third of the way through. (Except Ch 11 needs a bit more work, and Ch 12 is the only one that needs a full re-write because I'm changing the setting.)
3) I got inspired by a setting and decided on the next novel I'll be writing!
It's a based on the city of Whittier, Alaska, an ex-military base, cut off from civilization for most of the winter, the only access is by sea or a 2-mile tunnel that's only 16 feet wide.
The town's 200 residents all live together in one 14-floor apartment building that has a police station and post office on the first floor, and a school connected to it by an underground tunnel.
Can you imagine living in one apartment building with everyone in your town? And it being so cold you can't go outside?
