It's been a busy week here at Casa Harden.
Last week of classes at public school coincided with the last week of classes at driving school. Instead of going home after dropping Genius Kid off at driving school, I went to Panera's to write. Over 8K words written this week so far, and I should hit 10K by Saturday night. Yay!
Seriously, I'm closing in on finishing Sacrificed. If the first draft isn't done this week, it will be next week.
Yes, that offsets the sheer terror any parent feels when their teen is about to get their driver license.
In the meantime, I sold "Unexpected" to Sword and Sorceress 32. The latest volume of the long-running anthology will be released around the first of November. I'll let you know the specific date down the road.
Then I REALLY need to review the proof copies of the paperbacks done so far and get them launched.
I'm also considering whether or not to do a local author event. Dealing with total strangers in public sets off my anxiety, but Darling Husband has offered to be my bodyguard. Not sure what I'll do yet, but I definitely need something to sell if I'm going, i.e. finish proofing those paperbacks!
Overall, it feels great to be in the writing groove again!
