I was insane to do it, but I did it anyway. I turned in a second entry to the 2005 Palancas, this time in the Futuristic Fiction category.
I started writing this morning, muddled through all 22 pages for most of the day, and wrote the final sentence just half an hour ago. I hope I beat the deadline which just happens to be in, oh, an hour or so.
Other than the cramming, the sore fingers, and the bleary eyes, I'm quite happy with the piece that I wrote, plot holes and all.
Oh, I am never going to do something this crazy again.
