So I have a month left--technically. I keep looking for a way to keep writing, but if I can't find anything I'll be looking for a job as of September 1st.
Laugh at me if you like, but I'm thinking I'll check at some of the charter schools for asbergers kids around here and see if they need people. I think that would be interesting.
Right now I'm just doing as much as I can. I did almost 17000 words last week between four different books. Not as much editing, but I'm trying to get some of the old (unfinished) novels cleaned out and complete the triage edit on those I've finished.
I finished UnderWorld and I've now got three more books planned in that series--HalfBrothers, HalfWorld and HalfBlod. More peripheral characters whose main stories I had to cut. It seems to be a pattern--when I have a problem with a plot, it's usually because I tried to stuff too many plot-lines into it. But I fall in love with the characters and I want to tell their stories too...
HalfBrothers is about Samok and Alit (from DemonBorn), HalfWorld is another Kobi story and I'm not sure about HalfBlod. The others all came in threes so I figured I'd stick to the pattern. I'll find out sooner or later. Or I'll decide on something else.
I finished the Triage edit on DemonBorn (that's where HalfBrothers came from) so now I have five books finished in that series (out of six--now nine). I need to finish DemonLands, but right now I'm working on others.
I need beta readers for Demonborn. Anyone want to volunteer?
