So, as some of you may know if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I jumped fully back into my old Bloody Spade project this year -- not as a manga this time around, but a novel. I spent some time over the summer worldbuilding and basically overhauling the entire plot and the world the story was set in, and then in July, I started writing the book. Cut to a few months and 125k words later, and I now have a completed first draft!!
It's still very rough, maybe about 10% actually decent words and 90% summary, so it's gonna be a while before it's finished. If my other two books are anything to go by, it'll probably be about two years before it's ready for publishing (unless I surprise myself and work through it quicker, but I'm typically a slow writer so I wouldn't expect that to be the case. The fact that I finished a 125k draft in such a short time is a feat itself).
That said, I have done one round of revisions on the first chapter. That's available for public
