#FreeAwfulNovel Part 9: A Return to Sanity

In the last post, I shared with you a, well, let’s face it–stupidly long chapter. This time around things are much shorter at a mere 26 pages. I’m guessing I was worn out back in the day when I first wrote it.

We’re a bit over halfway through Warhawks. I’m only re-reading as I post, but I’m fairly certain the action is right around the corner.

In other news, I’m making good progress on Z-Day book 3. I’m trying something a little new this time around and working on the next Paxton book at the same time. It’s not an equal distribution — I’ve written about eight times as many words in the Z-Day book as I have for Pax, but I feel like it’s been a solid tool so far.

Sometimes as a writer I tend to be a bit hyper, and I bounce around from scene to scene when I lose focus. The only issue that tends to crop up is in editing, where I find that the transitions in the middle of scenes I put on pause aren’t always smooth. So by working on another project at the same time, it turns my easy distraction into more of an asset.

So far, so good. I’m on track to get A Place for War out in the last three months of 2018, and Come, Seeling Night will be out in early 2019, depending on how my publisher’s schedule shakes out.
