Just taking a quick break from writing to drop an update on the word count of Warmistress. I had hoped to be in the 25,000 word area at this point, but I’m only at 20,700 and change. I’ll let you do the math on how behind I am. When I look at Scrivener’s Project Targets ...

Another week of no progress. I’ve been swamped with Pikes Peak Writers stuff this week. As you already know, I was out of the house for part of last week because of the Black Forest Fire. That didn’t help progress or my psyche any. I flew out to California Sunday and have been here at ...

This past week has been crazy and exciting all at once. I’m in the last week of my current job. I had two new job offers come in last week, and I accepted one of them Friday. The one that I turned down called me on Monday and upped the ante a enough that I ...

It’s been a great week of productive writing for me. I’ve managed to get through a little over 7,000 words in the past week. I need more weeks like this one! I’m fairly deep into chapter 4 of Warmother, which is the final book in the Laurin trilogy. How many chapters are there going to ...

Humph. I’ve been a bad writer. I don’t have much to report for this week. 8,500 words are done on Warmother, but none of them came in the past week. We’ll see what the upcoming week brings. Maybe more words? Maybe just more code for Pikes Peak Writers.

It’s broken record time! Yep. That means I’m still editing Warmistress. I’m on page 272 out of 335. Nearing the end. With a little luck and some hard work, I’ll get the red-lines done today. Then I can delve into taking my fixes and changes and put them into the electronic version. I figure that’ll ...

In my last update I mentioned the martial arts program, so I wanted to follow-up on that. After a hard workout last Tuesday, I was left barely able to move my right arm and I had limited motion in my left arm. Fortunately, I was able to get into my chiropractor on Thursday evening and ...

I haven’t done much¬†writing this past week, but I’ve done tons of¬†editing. I’m walking my way through my print-out of Warmistress doing red-line edits. Marking places to improve, places to cut and places to expand upon. I’m on page 64 out of 335. I usually do edits faster than this, but I’ve added a new ...

Wow. It’s been almost a month since I last gave an update on my writing. In that time, I’ve finished the first round of edits on Warmistress. I’ve taken a break from the book and done quite a bit of “busy work” since then: Created a short story template for Scrivener that I’m finally happy ...

Sorry to sound like a broken record, but I’m still editing Warmistress. I’ve made a few passes over chapters 11-13, but I’m not quite done with them. I did take a side character that the protagonist meets and made her quite a bit more bat-shit crazy. I either needed to make the side character compassionate ...
