With The Bookie and Building Fluency: Advanced Number Sense published and available on all platforms, and my third audiobook (Of Objects and Obsessions, Book Three of the Tanner Trilogy) completed and distributed, I moved on to the next project, Desert Zydeco. I finished the first episode and have the three parts scheduled to go live on Patreon this month. I had fun writing this. My publication schedule says the next episode will be released in January.

On the docket this week was rewriting “The Raid,” the Waldman Investigations prequel and working on The Secret Gift, a holiday short (Shorter than a novel, probably more than a short story… so, novella? Maybe.). Since so much these days seems to be an experiment, I printed out both projects and have been reading through and making edits. Some of TR will be a freebie for readers of the Waldman Investigations series. I have ideas on how to rewrite it so it fits the parameters of a story to lead readers into the series. For SG, I’ll need to spend time with my spiral notebook so the story can unfold. Other tasks cropped up this week so I didn’t get far.

The “plan” is to publish SG by December 15. By the end of the year, I also need to write 2 short stories, one BTS blog, and the next episode in DZ for my Patrons on Patreon. Seems like a lot of writing, but if I take one or two projects at a time, I might be able to pull it off. The momentum of forward energy after completing one project and moving on to the next is both exciting and exhausting. The action of rolling from one project to the next, and having several projects in various stages of completion, seems to be how this writing life goes.
