Writing Robot Dawn seems to go on forever. I now have 1,352 pages (465,118 words). As of now, it appears to be a 5-book series concerning an odyssey about the Solar System. I completed the first rough draft last year and launched immediately into the second draft. Although much longer than I initially intended, it is now bounded, and all I have to do is work out the details of how things happen. Should take another two years. More updates to come if and when warranted.
