Saturday Waffling (July 19th, 2014)
The first fifteen parts of the Swamp Thing chapter are done. Total will be more than twenty, not quite sure how many more. Twenty-five tops, I’d say. Probably a bit lower. Probably going to be twenty-three or some utterly odd number like that where there’s no intuitive sense of an act structure.
Best parts so far are Part Four (7/25), Part Eight (8/22), Part Ten (9/5), and Part Twelve (9/19).
Best cliffhanger is Part Eleven, although I’m also very proud of where Part Six takes up and leaves off. Total chapter length is currently 43,595. It is longer than the Flood book.

Of course you can feel free to stop after a further 4616 words….

For those vastly interested in who is going to win the Last Raffle In Albion (until the next one), here are the guesses/people still in the running:
45,740 – elvwood
46,000 – Chris Gonzalez
47,978 – Anton B
48,211 – timber-munki
50,001 – Marionette
52,738 – What Happened To Robbie?
62,626 – Chris
1,000,000 – resevoirdogs
(My apologies if I missed any. I read through the comments on the 22 June post twice looking for guesses over the current word count, but am still human. Please comment if I missed any.)

And by 22 June I of course meant 21 June.

"It is happening… again…"
Philip Morris being amusingly coy about the possibility of there being more previously-missing episodes in the pipeline. Would it be irresponsible to speculate? It would be irresponsible not to!
