It feels like this week flew. I can’t believe it’s the weekend already. Anyhow, time to write a writing update.
Tomorrow (Sunday) I’m putting the trilogy collection of Rainy’s three books for sale on Amazon.
Heather’s and Sasha’s story for Dyalessia Friends is almost finished. I have about three scenes I want to include, which I hope to finish this week. I’ve hit 44,000 words and I’d like this story to have 50,000 to 60,000. This week I added 5,055, but it took all my power to do it. I like it being autumn but it doesn’t like me. So, I had days where my aches caused me to want to stay in bed or do nothing.
I’ve also started the self-edits for this story. I completed half of them so far. I plan to do more of them after this post or tomorrow (Sunday). I’m hoping the editor will send me the first round of edits for the prequel novel this week. My start date for this was the 1st, and it should take about ten days for the editor to complete everything. I haven’t heard anything different, so I’m assuming this is still the case.
The second book of my superhero series, Elly of Ellyville, is coming along. I’ve hit 10,000 words in it. This week, due to the health problems, I didn’t hit my word goal. Still, this book doesn’t need to be finished right away, so I’m okay with this. This week I added 2,340 out of the 2,500 goal.
I’ve also decided after I finish the second superhero book I’m going to slow down for the year. This will be the last novel I complete, and my focus is going to be on the short stories I want to complete. I have ten more to write for Cleo & Petra, and another series I’d like to focus on. Plus, the holidays are coming, so things are going to get crazy. So, writing these short stories in two or four weeks means I don’t have to work as hard.
