Thought it was time to do an update. I’ve been very busy working on Pirouette. It is up to 152k, and I estimate that it will come in at about 170k, which means some major cutting will be in order. But I’ll worry about that later.
I have been voice reccing it exclusively, and the wrist is doing alot better. Still may need to see the doc, but I’m hoping that will be unnecessary.
I also have been thinking about resurrecting an old short story and expanding it into a novel. It’s called Like Summer, and it’s about (among other things) a marriage of convenience and the healing power of love. Contemporary romances are shorter in length, and I thought that if I could bang out one within the next six months, I might be able to shop it around and perhaps even get it published. Alot of my favorite authors started out with comtemporary romances. And, it could get my foot in the door at a certain publisher I’m looking at for my other stuff. And, I’m looking to spread my wings a bit and try something new and different.
We shall see. It’s plotted and ready to roll.
In wedding news, the beloved and I booked our ceremony location a few weeks ago. It’s a beautiful little chapel. I knew when I walked in that it was The One. And the price was right, and they offer other services (photography, flowers, etc) at discounted prices. Works for me!
On 70 days of sweat, I’m up to 46,955. I’m doing wonderfully. I’m so glad I joined the challenge.
For the month (and April Fools — another challenge), I’m at 22,080. Going to try for 25k. It’s one of my highest monthly counts to date.
Well, that’s it for now. Spring is here finally! Whooohoo.
