Boy am I way behind on this.


Worked on that Steampunk-dragonpunk etc novel. My MC is finished in a side battle and will be headed back to the main base soon. But I need him to be able to spy on an enemy discussion and I am not quit sure how. Nor am I sure how to get him on an airship that is attacked by a huge dragon.

Almost finished with The Courier. It is 70,800 and some words. I had hoped to get it over 72,000 words but have nothing else to add at the moment. I still need to revise a new chapter and a scene which is long enough to be a chapter after all and then to figure out where to place that new chapter and scene. I may take a scene out of one of the longer chapters and add it to that scene. Still could be the shortest chapter in the book but that is okay.

Then for a couple of beta readers. Eventually I may send it to two publishers, maybe three. Not at the same time of course. If they don't want it I will Indie publish it. I may do that anyway.

I think that is the only two novels I have worked on for the last month.

It's been a while, and I may not visit often, but I dropped by to say that I've been outlining a new novel during the past month.

When I reviewed "My Recent Posts," I was surprised to find that it has been four and a half years since my last post. Having wandered a bit in the forums, it's good to see some familiar names.

This weekend I attended my first writing conference (LTUE) in at least three years. It felt good to be back.

Good luck with your writing, everyone.
