Oh, the distractions of life.

Between home renovations and repairs, traveling, and a rather nasty sinus infection it’s been a pretty busy couple of weeks, but I’m happy to announce that today There’s no such thing as werewolves went over the 20,000 word mark. I expect the story to end up at around 25,000 words so I’m closing in on the finish of the rough draft. I have to admit this story has been fun to write, and there have been quite a few surprises along the way.

I tend to write straight through a story, without any outline and only a vague idea of where the story will end up. As usual this one got sidetracked, and taken over by the characters on a regular basis, but I’m starting to believe that my characters write a better story than I do. So it’s all to the good.

I have coming up, toward the end of the month, two weeks where I will be on the road. I’m sure my writing will be spotty and my blogging nonexistent during that time, so I’m hoping to finish up the rough draft and have a good start on the first edit before I leave. I would like to have the work in the hands of my beta readers by mid November, and in the hands of my agent before Christmas.

I do plan on having an interview with my Agent here soon, so you can get to know her a bit. It’s in the works, I promise.

Until next time,

Steve
