After getting a few summer obligations finished, I put my shoulder to the plow lines(Yes, I'm a farmer at heart) and did lots of work on my writing. I finished edits on Book #3 of The Futhark Chronicles, Beneath the Mountain, and am sending it out for a final read through. I always need someone to check my commas.
I also sent the first book in my second fantasy series, First Dragon, off to a number of small publishers. I like the small publishers for so many reasons. They get back to you quickly. They're more likely to take a real interest in you personally. They understand the hurdles you face in promotion and in being a writer with a day job. I hope I can snare one of them to take on my newest venture in the world of prose.
I'm feeling good about getting something accomplished after weeks of devoting only minutes per day to my books. My goal of the next few months is to make writing a priority for a few hours every day.
My last major commitment this summer is a visit to Boston for my daughter's college orientation at Boston University. I'm looking forward to exploring the city together including the college bookstore/Barnes and Noble where I can spend a little time with an ice coffee.
When I return home, I have to get busy on my newest project. Once I decide what that is.
Is summer finding you with more hours to write? What are you feeling good about recently?
