September 7, 2021 - Time Flies!

Tuesday, September 07, 2021

No, I haven’t forgotten about my intention to post my writing progress. I just haven’t made much since I wrote last. But today I knew it was time to finish up that short story, and so I made that my priority. And finish it, I did, writing 2021 words for a total of just over 17,000 words.

The ending was easy, since I’ve known what would happen since I started thinking about this story. In fact, the ending was the whole reason to write the story to begin with. I could have just put a short narrative prologue at the beginning of the first book in the new series, but I think in stories. I also felt that since I’ve made my readers wait so long to find out what happens next to Lilliana and Christopher, they deserved more than a few sentences.

This is the first draft, and so I need to revise it to make sure it reads smoothly and includes all the information I intended, but not so much people who read it will get bored. And check commas and such so that the writing doesn’t annoy people.

But the hard part is done, and my plan is to release it in November or December, with the first book in the new series (did I mention that’s the Rainbow Ranch Mysteries?) coming in late January or early February of next year.

There will be something else in October of this year, but you’ll just have to wait to find out what that is.
