Well, we’re finally getting some rain here in the Valley, which is wonderful. We needed the rain so badly! It brought with it the lovely cooler fall temperatures, and the dogs and I have definitely been enjoying that. The mud, not as much, but I’ll take what I can get, haha!
On the writing front, I finished the next short story in the magic-Western series! That’s four out of seven planned stories now finished in first draft, and I’ve started the fifth one. I expect to be finished with the first drafts of all seven before Christmas, which will give me some time to let them rest for a bit before revising them.
My revision project has really been flying the last few weeks too, and I’m loving how it’s going. This is a draft I wrote for NaNoWriMo several years ago, and it ended up pretty much a mess, but it had enough spark to it that I decided I wanted to save it. I’m taking it through the same novel revision class I used to revise The Murderwarden, and I just finished Lesson 1! I’ve identified what’s broken, and what I love about it, so now we move onward to figuring out how to fix it and turn it into something to share with you all next year.
