Twas the night before …


Another day of writing, rewriting, and editing. The simple goal is to ‘finalize’ 650 words every day. If I can do that for the next few months, the majority of the work will be completed and it will be on to the next writing project. Yes, I already have the next book outlined.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all my friends and family. I hope to see you all soon.

Oh yeah, here’s today’s sentence:  Annie smelled the sour, all-too-familiar, scent of half-digested whiskey and knew there was a better than even chance the liquid would soon seek an escape route too.
