Terminal = 75,301 (so far, and this weekend it’ll get completed at about 80k)

That’s right. That’s RIGHT. I told you yesterday, I have the next two chapters halfway written, and the final chapter is all outlined. I expect the final three chapters of TERMINAL SEQUENCE to each come in anywhere between 1000-3000 words; say 1500 on average. That’s 4500 words to the finish line, half of which haveContinue reading “Terminal = 75,301 (so far, and this weekend it’ll get completed at about 80k)”

The year in review: onward to 2020!

But every few years or so I find myself doing one… 2019 was a very interesting year, as all years really are. It had big highs and big lows.Continue reading “The year in review: onward to 2020!”
