I just finished the last words of the rough draft of chapter 2 of Rag & Muffin. Again, though it undoubtedly has problems I won't be able to see until later, I think it reads rather well. Also, it somehow seems to have more blood and guts than the comic version. If I can keep up this pace, I should have a complete rough in the near future. It helps that I've already done almost all the legwork and am now down simply to the composition.
