Wednesday, I finished revising my 2008 novel Chasing the Wind. Last night, Collin uploaded it--with a new cover--to Amazon and Smashwords. That may not sound like a big deal, and it won't be to anyone else--but for me, it marks the first time in five years I've been able to complete a project. It's the first time in almost twenty years I've been able to make a deadline, contractual or self-imposed. Needless to say, I'm feeling pretty good right now.
A fellow writer asked me (via Facebook) how the sequel, An Army of Angels, is going. My response: "Like traffic on the George Washington Bridge." Unless you've spent the last few weeks on Mars, you know what that means.
It ain't moving at all.
I would love to finish it--but first, I have to figure out what's wrong with it. I know something's missing--I just haven't figured out what. Not yet. I did publish part of it as a short story a while back--which is why my collaborator's name isn't on the cover--yet. He'll make that addition if and when it gets finished.
In the meantime, I'm planning--if all goes according to plan--to publish Sam's Story next month, which will mark the third anniversary of his passing. If I make that deadline, I'll feel I'm finally getting back on track....
