I confess I didn’t do much writing in the last couple of months. I’ve been trying to split my time, fitting in reading for pleasure, betareading another author’s work, and playing video games.
The video games shouldn’t distract me any longer – it’s just that new installments of two series that I really enjoy were released recently. But I have finished Dragon Age: Inquisition, and only the first episodic “book” of Dreamfall: Chapters (which fans having been waiting TEN YEARS for!) is available at this time. I played through that and am eagerly awaiting the next piece, which currently has an expected release date of “Soon.”
But fear not, the dry spell seems to have come to an end! These last few days I have been writing more and more. The first draft of The Prophecy is now weighing in at 67,000 words, and is probably about 85% done. I hope to have it completed within the next few weeks.
Of course then there will be revision, followed by some more revision, and maybe throw in another round of revision for good measure. I’m not sure I’ll quite make my anticipated release period of Spring 2015, but at the rate I’ve been working these last several days, I don’t think I’ll miss it by much. Maybe I’ll even surprise myself and get it out there sooner than I think.
In other words, Book II of The Sentient Prophecy has an expected publication of “Soon-ish”!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I left Anna and some friends boiling over with righteous indignation, and someone Sentient is going to have to pay…
