Writing Report


Got to be a western if it's got a bull on the cover!

Got to be a western if it’s got a bull on the cover!

The last day of February I finished the rough draft of the companion piece to The Safari Bride, The Cimarron Bride. Mind you, it’s a rough draft. I was supposed to have finished it at the end of January. Spent too much time watching TV, reading, sleeping, all sorts of stuff that interfered with the writing. Plus, there’s still a lot of work to be done on this, but I immediately launched into my next book, a science fiction mystery The Goodall Mutiny.

Start date on this was was March 1. It’s March 7 and I’ve only finished three chapters, but the good news here is that I might have a more complete first draft on this one than I did with The Cimarron Bride. At least that’s the plan. It’s also the plan to finish this one before April 1. We’ll know how that turned out pretty soon. Going to write a bit more on it tonight before I turn in.

Don’t forget to turn the clocks forward early Sunday morning. Daylight Savings Time begins.

Something else alerting you that it's a western.
