April is less than an hour away from being over here in Central Daylight Time. I only worked on one project this month and that was Simon Bradley and the X-Ray Specs. I’m really happy to announce that the Project Tracker over in the sidebar has been updated because I just finished the first draft! It came in at 67, 544 words.
What especially jazzes me about this is that I only started writing it — pre-writing and actual writing — in February. This draft just poured out of me. As I always do, I plan to let this draft sit for a while now as I unleash it upon my beta readers. Between them and time, I’m sure I’ll come back to it with more than a few changes to make.
I can’t wait to introduce all of you to Simon and the crazy things that happen to him after he moves to Santa Lucia, California, and someday I promise to do just that.
I suppose three other noteworthy events also happened this month. First, I officially launched this website. Second, I officially launched my Facebook page. And third, I officially launched my Twitter page. I use the word “launched” precisely because it sounds so much better than “I started using this thing and I hope you’ll like it.”
