Sorry We Haven’t Talked in a While…

I’ve been a little busy. REVENANT is now at 100,000 words and set up for the run in to the climax. Just killed off a ghost and a turned Carlos back into a right, bloody bastard. Yay! Bad guy on … Continue reading

The End is Nigh

Today’s word count (2,362 words) on the Work-in-Progress took it past the 90,000 word mark. There’s still a lot to do, but I can see the end from here, distantly, and it should be no problem to make my deadline. … Continue reading

Dogs and Work…

On Monday I ripped out 5,200 words of the work I’d put in over the weekend and I’m only just now catching up. I realized the book had derailed at about the 30K mark and needed a major overhaul so … Continue reading

Wednesday’s WiP Snip

Negotiating an unfamiliar transit system can be nerve-wracking, but I got to do it in a foreign language while trying to stay off the radar of anyone—or anything—associated with my nearly-father-in-law. The paranormals were much easier to avoid than the … Continue reading

Last NaNoPost of 2013

Here’s your last teaser from November: “They must have their apocalypse—their dead in legions unburied, an endless sea of bones….” As predicted, I didn’t make it to 50,000 words for the month of November, but the count wasn’t too far … Continue reading

The Post-Thanksgiving Post

Well, I didn’t make the NaNoWriMo challenge count goal of 50,000 new words added to the manuscript this month. Partially due to the scurrying about for Thanksgiving and some other issues, I made it only to 45,400 for the month … Continue reading
