All right, the first draft of On Eagle Wings Upborne, the second book in the Wings of Morning series, is done. I started May 1 and finished July 24, putting down 80,934 words in the follow-on to On Wings of the Morning, tracing Otto Kerchner’s story from May, 1946 to October, 1954. Without giving too much away, this segment includes the birth of twins to Betty and Otto, Mata’s college career, Otto’s recall to the Air Force, his service in Korea, the success of M & M Airlines, an airplane crash, a flying circus, a visit from Someone from Otto’s past, a baseball game, and a hangar dance.
The next step is revising Eagle Wings, and I had planned to start on the next installment, Beyond the Blue Horizon, next May, but I want to keep going, so I think I will revise in the morning and compose in the afternoon. I’ll keep you informed, Faithful Readers. Thanks for being with me on this journey.
