Someone’s child, possibly one of my own, (I’m not going to name names) recently decided to lay a guilt trip on me and asked me when I was going to get on with it and finish the sequel to The Galian Spear.
I responded by mentally planning a graph showing how long the first edition of Book One took me, with copious vibrant rectangles added to display all the other writing and editing projects with which I am engaged, other larger rectangles communicating the amount of time given to certain child-related and household tasks, and figures along the lower axis estimating final completion dates, some of a uniquely distant nature. By the time I completed this, said child was watching YouTube.
I condensed my findings. “When I have time,” I said.
The child gave an absent nod, eyes fixed on the TV.
I am writing, I reassured myself.
Okay, I have posted few word counts.
Blog posts have not been abundantly numerous, I am the first to admit. But their lack of abundant numerosity does not preclude prolificity (I am not sure if everything in that sentence qualifies as a word).
Most of my writing time is taken up by work on my political thriller The Frozen Man. That’s all I’m going to say about that.
I have been editing and beta reading some amazing books, one of which is due to be published in 2016. That’s all I’m going to say about them.
Last, and far from least, the new edition of my children’s novel, The Galian Spear, is set for publication in 2016. Those who cannot wait can read the prologue here: http://wp.me/p4A9P3-25
More will be revealed.
