The Manipulator's Knock - Chapter One

Unedited, unadorned. First chapter of The Manipulator's Knock


Done Eight

500 words today, and Tryst is in the books, so to speak. This'll need some work, I think. Six months for a ~61,000 word novel is not a great pace.

I'm going to spend the rest of the week finishing the short story "The Dragon", and then start on The Manipulator Knocks / The Manipulator's Knock on Sunday July 10th.   


Some number of words in Tryst. Not finished, but nearly. Should end this week. I wrote about 400 words in a short story called The Dragon, which is about rescuing something from a flooded house.
