Update On Writing Progress


Hello to everyone!

My writing schedule for the year is a bit off track so far. I had hoped to be further along with the first draft of the Historical Romance I am writing, which is a bit different from what I have been writing–mainly horror. If you have read my Investigative Paranormal Society series though, you can see that love is a theme that runs through these novels. My writing schedule was interrupted by life–I was ill with a stomach virus for about 10 days, not covid, and one of my closest friends just died.

While I am a bit behind on my plan, I did reach 20,000 words on the 1st draft today. At this present rate, I should have the first draft complete sometime in April.

Additionally, I want to put what I hope are the finishing edits on two other books–Book 1 of a YA environmental post-apocalypse series and Book 1 of a horror series.

My question to all of the writers out there who read this: how is your writing progressing?

  1. So sorry to hear of your illness – and the death of a close friend. That is always a body blow:(. I’m interested in your historical adventure, as I don’t read horror. Have you found writing a comfort during this difficult time, or does the stressful situation get in the way of your creativity? It seems that my writing friends fall into two camps. As for me – I find writing is a huge release and comfort.

  2. I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been sick, Charles. Please accept my condolences on the death of your friend; the death of someone close is always such a blow. It’s good that you’ve made progress on your writing projects. I was able to write several new poems this past week, so I’m happy with that.

  3. Okay. I’m working on my third novel which is science fiction. I’m writing it as a serial which seems to be the only way to get myself to actually write and finish novels. At this stage the first draft won’t be finished until towards the end of the year, but I’m perfectly fine with that as it gives me time to consider where the story is going. Happily I’m in no rush to get to the end and prefer to take my time with it.

  4. My condolences for the loss of your friend. As far as writing goes, I find that staying home more has helped me develop a better writing routine. I also have more quiet time to ponder new ideas for new books…so all in all, I can’t complain. I haven’t set hard deadlines this year. I’ve done that for a number of years past and am giving myself a bit of a break on that score.
