My goal for 2006 was to have a complete rough draft of the book I am writing. I am 30 pages (about 15,000 words) into it. My story has been edited by several people, including a Creative Writing professor from Cleveland State University, Cleveland, Ohio.
The outline of how it will end has not only been written, but has section of dialogue already fleshed out. I hope that I will have this totally finished by the end of January. Although I have had a few days off, I have been watching our three children while my wife had to work the last week of the year. I have squeezed in some late night writing (my best time of the day to write, I have found) but still won’t make my deadline.
Overall, I think it has a strong, original storyline. I think it screams out for being a full length movie. My close circle of friends who have heard the plot have already requested a signed copy of this exciting fantasy novel.
I just want to get this sucker done and ready for submitting to publishers next year.
