I’m Almost Finished my First Series

When I first started writing, the idea of having a finished series under my belt never occurred to me. My thought process was, I should actually have a published book (or at least a contracted one) before I started working on book 2. When I got that first book under contract, it was with the verbal understanding that the series would almost certainly go six books. That’s a long time to wait for the series to be finished so I didn’t give it much thought. And then I had the idea for Scouts of the Apocalypse.

Starting a New Month

NaNoWriMo is over for another year and that could mean time to relax. It certainly has in past years. But I’ve made a decision to keep going after NaNo was complete.

NaNo 2017 – Day 10 – A Mixed Bag

Day 10 was a mixed bag for writing. I didn’t start to work on my NaNoWriMo project until about 5:30 PM when we were driving up to Red Deer. I managed about 700 words on that drive.

I had to find a couple spots to do my writing. Not really any continuous time. Number of Words for the Day:  2048 words It was another tough day of writing. I’m at a point in the story where I’m not entirely sure what is coming next. I […]
