Let’s up the goal a bit to 60k shall we?
Well, I did not finish before Monday. I did, however, finish on Monday. Great success. A winner is me. And as if to prove that success is a breeder of success, after I finished with the competition, I had a great idea tying together several smaller ideas I’ve worked on.
I’m ending today ahead in NNWM by several hundred words. Which means I get to start the second half of the month in “just don’t fuck it up” mode.
After catching up almost completely — within a few thousand words — I fell behind again; however, the days off let me come up with a new direction for something, and now I am less than four thousand words behind. At my current pace, I will be caught up by the end of the week. Hopefully next update, I will… Read more »

After the Blue Skies Fall, I’ve decided to throw everything together into one big collection: Boots, Dames, and Skies: The Red, White, and Blue Collection (Cigars and Legs Book 5) Ron Cavanaugh flew a fighter over Korea, took shrapnel, and then spent time recovering in England. He thought coming home would be a break from the violence. Until he found… Read more »
