Here we are, within striking distance of the end of Cold Streets. I have three more scenes to do, and all of them are well laid out in my head. I think a week, two at the most, will be all I need to wrap this puppy up. Then I start editing and getting feedback. Arguably, that step’s harder than the actual writing. It’ll be like I’m doing actual work!
I’m going to lay out an updated outline for Godslayer at the same time. That way, I can jump into 350 a day on that one while Cold Streets is getting the rough treatment from friends and colleagues. I think it’s going to be a nice change to do something entirely fanciful and completely out of my own head rather than something that’s a sequel more grounded in our own world.
And on Sunday I believe I’ll have Flash Fiction to work on, as well as possibly keeping tabs on some other projects. Energy and confidence are surprisingly high for what is usually a lethargic time of the year for me. I’m going to hold on to this as long as I can, nay-sayers and detractors and doubters be damned.
