Macbeth the Usurper

It's a Draft

I called it a draft, and I have draft #5 done. (That means that I saved it, then named the file draft 6.)

45k words.

Drafts are hooray moments. They really mean that I wrapped up most of the ambitions of the previous draft, and I have lots of new ambitions coming up that really don't fit with the previous ambitions. So when I hit this point, I work on wrapping things up, tidying things up a bit, and doing my best to wrap up the loose stuff.

"Standing Between Earth and Heaven" still progresses slowly.

I had a complement on "Weeds Among Stone." Apparently, it reminded the reader of rural Chinese novels. Cool. I don't know what that means, but I hope that I do it again.
