End of the year wrap-up

I am almost done tying all the loose ends together, creating a new series that will tie into my Paranormal world. I came up with a nifty way to tie that series into the Endless American Dream series, and I'll tackle that bit of it next year.

Then it's on to the business end of things: editing, working on cover designs, prepping for print.

I have a Plan ... I hope!

I'm redoing everything!

I wrote Book 8 of the Dream Series this year, and another Remembered Classics Mystery (based on Beauty and the Beast). Then I had an epiphany about how some of my books all fit together, and I might just re-do a few books.

Yes, my time travel books fit in with the Endless American Dream series, which fits in with the Celestial Service, which fits in with my paranormal stories.

Confused? Don't worry. I have a plan ....

I'm getting the itch to write again

I finished two mysteries this year after writing Book 7 of the Dream Series. I've been not-writing for about 2 weeks and I'm getting antsy to get going again.

I plan to review Books 1-7 in December, then I'll dig into it again in January to write Book 8. The end is in sight: Book 9 will wrap up the series.

Fingers, don't fail me now!

Oh, the angst, the worry, the anguish

Yep. I'm writing.

I've made good progress on Book 7 of my paranormal series, but I'm at that point where I'm facing my self-imposed deadline. I have 8 chapters to and a little over a month to do it. I'm pretty sure I'll make it, but ...

I always go through a lot of angst when writing on this series. I have to remind myself constantly: "It's not what you want the story to be. It's what the story is." I love these characters and I want them to be happy and not have any problems, but I have to remind myself that the story demands otherwise.

Hence, the angst.

I never know for sure if I hit the mark until I finish it, let it sit for a few months, then come back and read it again.

So I'll let you know in, oh, October, if I did it.

Until then: it's fingers on the keyboard, and writing.

New year, so it's time to write

I'm wrapping up my review of Books 1-6 of the Dream series and jotting notes for Books 7-9. I'm in mostly unexplored territory now. I had rough drafts of books 1-6 but have little to work on for the future.

It should make for interesting times ahead!
