The end of the book kept eluding me, but at 1:00 AM today I typed the last sentence of the initial draft of Crossed Out: An Ana Lode Thriller. I must be maturing as a writer, because I didn’t bawl my head off when I finished.
Instead, I had a warm feeling of accomplishment. Progress!

Tan, Rested, and Ready

We’re back from Disney World!

We’re back from Disney World! And while that’s normally a “so what else is new” statement around here, what’s different about this time is, we’re back from FIVE DAYS at Disney World! Believe it or not, it wasn’t enough.

Videos are going up on our YouTube Channel slowly but surely. The dogs are back from the sitter – finding a reliable sitter was a game changer – and wondering where they live, really. They’ll be back on their schedules soon enough, in time for us to goof them up again.

Onward…

Yep, that’s me, hard at work pretending to be editing my book manuscript.

But! I’m about 1/3 of the way through marking it up. I need to spend some more time marking up the other 2/3, but Jaime and I have some personal stuff happening this week (hence no Disney video this past weekend, as an aside to anyone who came over here from YouTube wondering where we went) and I’ve been spending my nights working on Book Two because of course I am. I really do need to get back to Book One, and I promise I will. I kinda have to, unless I can pull off some sort of George Lucas thing and start in the middle, then release Book One 20 years later or something.
