I Said I Would Start Reporting…

So I actually have something to report. SHOCK!!

I was worried for a time there earlier. But got in here around 2 a.m. and worked for over two hours on the book I have been playing at off and on for a while now.

And I also got the next issue of Smith’s Monthly ready to turn in as soon as I finish the novel.

No point in actually reporting word count on this book, so the new book I will be starting shortly I will report every word. Got a couple ideas on how I might be able to frame the reporting as well into an actual nonfiction book on writing, maybe talking about some critical voice issues that pop up and go away along the path. That might be fun.

But I managed just over 2,100 new words in the process tonight and should have the book done and in later this week or this weekend. I’ll take that much as a success for such a late start on my first day of deciding to report.



They all just started. Still time to jump into any of the workshops.
