A Call for Accountability...
Okay, so the summer has begun. Today was my last day teaching for the year. I have about two months off. Off…yeah, right. This summer I really need to write like a madman. I've a new fantasy series in mind. One that has been boiling furiously on the back burner for five years. And now, at last, I can unleash it.
Now, I'm not under contract yet, so I can't reveal too much. But I promise this will be the most epic story I've ever told. Amazing realms...places you've never seen or imagined. A multitude of races. A bestiary that is ready to burst at the seams. And beneath it all a vast history so varied and deep, I'm almost beginning to wonder if I made it up or just simply discovered it.
But I need your help. I need to write and I need to write lots. But it's summer, and between playing with the kids, completing honey-do lists, and just plain recreating, time can zip by in an instant. So here's what I propose: keep a watch on my Word Count Progress Tracker in the sidebar. It should be rising daily. If you don't see additions, please post a comment saying something to the effect of "Dude, sit down at the computer and knock out 1,000 words!"
The most creative word of encouragement shall be rewarded. I'll not say how at the moment. ;-)
And now, I need to get back to writing.
