Exciting News

I’m alive!!
In case any of you were worried, I’m not dead or captured or otherwise in grave danger. Nope. I’ve just been doing other things. Writing, mostly. And that leads me to the exciting news I have to share with you guys.

I must scream it to the world, my excitement from the top of someplace very high!

I must scream it to the world, my excitement from the top of someplace very high!

I finished the first draft of Something More! It only came to 64,000 words, which is quite a bit less than I had been planning. I already know of several scenes that I will be adding in the second draft, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to bump the word count up. I’ve been working on this draft for about three years, so it is a huge relief to have it finished! I’m looking forward to editing, and starting book two with great excitement! 😀

Before that, however, I will be working on a few short stories: One is a submission for an anthology that I’d like to be included in, and the other two are just little shorts that I’ll be sharing with you on my blog. 🙂

And finally, my last bit of news is that I am starting college next week! This is an exciting (and slightly terrifying) new experience for me, so your prayers would be appreciated. And if I’m MIA for a while, you’ll know why (and hopefully pray harder 😉 ).

  2. WHOO-HOO! Is this your first novel? Either way, you go! And best of luck in college. I too move into the dorms nextweek and I’m already trying to figure out how I’m going to write with two roomates.
