All Quiet on the Western Coast

So yes, I’ve gone three whole days without a blog post. But I’ve been busy.

First, I’ve been cruising along in my latest book, passing the 32000 word mark this morning. On Friday, I wrote nearly 3900, and I was completely blitzed after that. That exhaustion, combined with a couple of bad nights of sleep in a row, led to me not writing anything yesterday. The story is going well, and I’m aiming for around 75000 words total, which means I’m not quite at the halfway mark. But even at a very reasonable pace, with a few distractions tossed in, I should be there by the end of the year.

Second, with the election behind us, and my pledge not to get overly political for a while, I’m just not so riled up about anything where I feel the need to get up on my soapbox. That’s a good thing. Calm Joe is much easier for my family to talk to.

I’m also working on a couple of other little side writing projects which I’ll get into at a later date.

So while I have not been here for a few days, there is no need to send out the search and rescue parties. I’m deep in a sea of words for other things, but safe and sound, nonetheless.
