Heading into the office to finish grading for the summer class. I’m so glad to have a couple of weeks to focus on the book and the land before the boys get here. Once I’m with them, everything else will go on the back burner, and I’ll be in full force Daddy mode for eleven or twelve days. Then, I’ll get about a week to catch my breath before dual enrollment starts.
I’m writing the climactic scene of book three now, and the feeling is just surreal. I can’t believe this book is almost finished. My close and dear friend, Philip, has agreed to help with the polishing and editing, and I’m grateful to have his assistance. I’ve long said he’s one of the smartest people I know, so I believe he will smooth out a lot of the rough edges in the manuscript. Once we get the polishing down, then I’ll have a better idea of the release date, but it’s not too far away. Stop tapping your foot, Patty.
Overall, things are going well. I’ve gotten so much done this summer. It’s great to feel a little pride in myself again. As my friend, Dagan, and I remind each other all the time — small victories.
