I’m happy to report that I’ve had an unusually productive day of writing today: 3,000 words, comprising four scenes of Mere Mortals, book two of my Star Trek Destiny trilogy.
Just seven scenes to go, which I hope to have finished by New Year’s Day. Then I can scrawl out the acknowledgments, paste in the About the Author copy, treat myself to special ice cream, and start my spell-check and polishing draft.
With a little bit of luck, I’ll have the draft ms. out to my ever-helpful beta readers by Friday, January 4, and a revised version to my editors by Wednesday, January 9.
Then I can begin the final part of this franchise-shaking saga: Lost Souls, coming to an editor near me sometime in April and to bookstores everywhere in December 2008.
