Over the last week and a half I have written over thirty thousand words in my fourth novel. So it’s safe to say I’m back on it. Hitting it hard. I don’t want to prematurely call out how long it’s going to be, nor do I want to goal myself at a certain word- or page-count. But I think (I think) I have somewhere around forty thousand words to go to get the story told. That’s about what I think it’s going to take. So realistically, I could have it done in the next few weeks. We’ll see how that goes.
Before a few weeks ago, I had not touched the book since October of 2014, when, as you recall, my update was that I hoped to get finished by Christmas. Christmas. Christmas of 2014. A year ago. And then I fell off the face of the earth. But I’m back, friends. I should have a new book for you by summer at the latest.
