The End of the Year Just Over Two Weeks Away!…

That is a scary thought, isn’t it? This year is about over.

So now is the time to be looking back and seeing how the year went in general and with the writing.

And now is the time to start planning ahead. The holidays will be on everyone shortly and then you will blink and it will be 2017.

Yup, it is that time of the year.

As for today, meeting with WMG and then worked up at WMG offices getting more and more set up after the shift-around move. Moving inside the building sure makes it a ton easier to do, but also just as annoying as any move.

Tonight, while managing to get about 2,000 words done in two sessions, the ending of this book sort of came to me. I think it’s a ways off yet, but considering how complex this book is, glad I have an idea for it.
