Achievement Unlocked

Yesterday, I finished my first full-pass edits for Scouts of the Apocalypse: Zombie War. That puts the book one step closer to its planned June release.

I made a spreadsheet to track my progress and fancied it up by having it calculate how many words I needed every day to hit the mark. Then I wrote new words. And then I let it sit for almost a week-and-a-half. The entire time it sat, I agonized about it; why wasn’t I writing? So, after […]
