Today I finished the second edit of my latest novel, working title “The Courier,” which means that it’s pretty much a completed project. Sometimes it seems like my writing just drags along forever, but looking back I see that I’ve written 3 novels in the past 2 years.
This latest wave of fiction-writing began as an experiment. I wanted to reorganize, expand, and supplement what I had already written into a loosely organized series. I’d say that the experiment has been successful. I now have finished 5 parts in this series, plus half of a sixth. There will be seven altogether, comprising maybe 500K words. If I maintain my recent pace I might be finished with all seven by the end of 2013.
Given that the experiment is working, maybe it’s time to see if I can get these things published. Truth be told though, I find looking for an agent or a publisher so distracting that I can’t write. Since momentum is with me and I pretty much know how to finish off the series, I’ll probably just keep writing.
