A couple of days ago, I reached 60,000 words on the fourth novel of the Beyond the Blue Horizon series, On the Wings of Grace. This represents a benchmark for me in the writing of a book: I know what’s going happen the rest of the book and how it relates to what has come before. I can relax into the writing, probably forgetting that I still need to revise the thing a whole lot. Well, that’s what it takes, and I think I’m up to it!
I can’t tell you too much about the plot without giving it away (duh!), but I will tell you another character dies at this point. I won’t say who. We all need a little mystery in our lives, n’est-ce pas?
With any luck at all I should finished by the end of April unless I put on some speed. But, as I wrote earlier, I know where the plot is going. I got hung up about five times and had to re-work what I had done to make it work, throwing me behind. But, hey, it’s not a road race, and I think the changes I made were for the better. Stay tuned, Faithful Readers! There’s more to come!
