Okay, I've finished 'Slavers of Trakor' for the second time, and this time saved it in numerous places. Yeesh. Came in at 7084 words in first draft, so about the right size. It came out a little more downbeat than I had expected, but there's a lot of fighting and action and aliens and monsters. I do like it, though it will need some editing. Anyway, putting it aside for a few days so I can think about other things.
