Writing Update...

I'm happy to say that having my daughter in Kindergarten and my son in second grade has been wonderful for my writing, giving me much more time than I had previously (which I admit wasn't much!). As a result, I've been able to move a Varin novel - "For Love, For Power" - onto my front burner, while keeping a couple of shorter stories developing at the same time. I've currently completed six chapters of the novel draft and am in the midst of chapter seven; I've also finished preliminary revisions of my Realm of Words story, "Kindred Spirit." A sequel to my 2009 Analog story, "Cold Words," is still in outline form but I hope to move forward on it as soon as I get "Kindred Spirit" out on submission.
