They say that everything has its time. I posted in April 2012 that I was hard at work on a story called Kanana the Jungle Girl. In September 2012, I posted that I was putting on the back burner. In March 2013, I went back and rewrote the outline for the project. Well, this past week, I pulled the manuscript out and started writing. It was plotted as a eighteen chapter book. In the past four days, I’ve written three chapters and combined a fourth into one of the three I finished. At this point I’ve only got five more chapters to go. I don’t want to jinx myself, but I feel like I can polish these off pretty quickly.
As I mentioned the other day, this story is a sort of reverse-Tarzan type story with a couple of differences. It takes place on a mysterious unknown continent on a vastly different alternate Earth (in fact, it’s a ringworld), around 1913. It features alternate world versions of a few historical individuals, notably Teddy Roosevelt. I optimistically said I thought I could finish it off in a month or two. At the rate I’m going now (knock on wood) it might be days. Watch this space.
