Update Tuesday: 6/24-6/30

Wow. Where did the first half of the year go? I can't believe it's already July.

Let's see. Woven is off to betas. Thank you so much to all those who offered. If I didn't take you up on the offer, don't despair. I may still need you a couple drafts from now.

While Woven is away for summer camp, I've been feverishly working on research for Jason McDaniels and the Hammer of the Gods. (That's a mouthful so it will now be HOG for purposes of brevity.) I know I've been venting my research woes here on the blog. Thank you for putting up with that. I promise my blog posts will become more random instead of being stuck on Pete and Repeat.

I finished most of the research I needed to do. Enough that I could actually sit down on Saturday and plot out the entire book. This is going to be an adventure novel. I'm aiming for around 60-65K for word count. It's YA, but a bit on the older end of the YA spectrum. I'm aiming to have it finished or mostly finished by the end of the month. It's a tall order but I think I can fill it.

How are your WiPs going?

  1. Your new book sounds so great! I am almost finished with CURSE. It's driving me crazy how close I am! I wish I could just finish already, but it does take some time and thought to get it all right.

    1. I hate that stir-crazy feeling I get when I'm so close to finishing the first draft of a new project but it feels so far away.
