It's going okay, I think. Progressing a bit more slowly than I would like, but progressing nonetheless. I'd say I have the first half, or a little more, either drafted or sketched, but the second half is very vague in my mind, and I still don't have clear thoughts on an ending. Which is a problem, considering that I have to turn in a summary in a little more than a week, and I probably ought to have at least a theory about a likely ending. Also, I already have 12k words, which is good, except for how much more I'm sure I still have to go. At least the draft deadline is over a month away.
The good thing is that I feel like I got a handle on Al-Cid pretty quickly. I was a little worried about that, but it seems that his is a voice that is natural to me. And since I'm already comfortable working with both Balthier and Ashe, I am good to go as far as primary characters are concerned. For all my fears about writing in the formal style demanded by FFXII fic, it turns out that I have a lot of fun doing it.
