I have been to the hurricane...

Ok, who am I kidding? I'm still in the middle of it.

I'm about 13-15 thousand words short of my word count. The deadline is in one week. I just got back from three days and two nights with 180 sixth graders at an outdoor education center where I had virtually no time to write. I cheated. I wrote anyway. Still, it wasn't enough.

While at camp with the kids, BBBBBRRRING!! My cell phone. It's Gregg, my agent. "Wayne, I just heard from Reuters. They want you to fly out to NYC to join Christopher Hopper for an interview about Christian Fantasy."

"Uhhhhh, ok." {Thinks to self: Cool, I get to do TV again. Cool, I get to hang with my swordbrother, Sir Christopher again. Uh, oh…now, when do I write?}

This is a tight squeeze. I don't actually know that I'll be able to meet my deadline. But I also know God is into the impossible. So, I'm going to trust that He'll make it all come together…


I'll get back to adding Treasure Hunt Points after Oct. 20th. Thanks for all you're doing to spread the word!

Never alone.

Wow! you are very busy, keep writing, even if that means you have to cheat sometimes, by writing when you should not! Have a good till October 20th! Hope you make it!

It's fine! You'll do great once you give up that obnoxious sleep habit you've acquired.

;) I'll be praying.

You'll do fine! I have faith in you, my friend.

Either you'll be able to fly through 15k words in less than or week, or your publisher will miraculously push the date back a teensy bit...*shrugs* One can hope, and pray :)

And say Hey'a to Christopher for me!!!! (if you remember, that is...)

Thanks so much for the prayer and well wishes. I'm almost there. And seriously, there have been some miraculously productive days--7,000 words in a day even.

AND, God has dropped some way cool plot twists into my lap--things I totally didn't see coming.

So much for Mr. Batson, the staunch outliner. lol
