Today is the seventieth anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Please take a moment to remember all the brave souls that lost their lives on that day and to thank those who continue to protect us.
For the history buffs: Franklin D. Roosevelt’s address to Congress after the Pearl Harbor attack.
The marketing strategy for INTO THE DARK is complete and that specific query sent.
Tomorrow’s Thriller Thursday post is ready to go.
I sat down with Kait Nolan’s Novel Notebook and revisited THE PROPHET. I realized I’d gotten out of touch with my characters (it had been a few weeks since I’d written anything for it), and so I filled out the Character Worksheets Kait supplies. I also worked on some plot questions and filled out a novel timeline.
I remembered why I was so excited for this book. The plot is intense, the twists tricky, and the characters interesting. The Prophet has a lot of potential, and starting Thursday, I’m going to throw myself into writing for the next few weeks. I don’t want to send out anymore queries this year, and I think focusing on the new book is just the ticket to keep my mind from wandering.
And…I wrote 500 words of The Prophet last night. Not a lot, but my goal was 250, and I’d already written Thriller Thursday, so I’m pretty proud.
Thanks to all of you for your encouragement over the last few months!
Goals for Sunday Check-In
Simple: Write! Get as much done on The Prophet as I can with limited time (kids and life).
