Day 19 of Writing Every Day In March

Yesterday was a close one. I almost didn't write! It was a very full day. I wrote a few sentences right before bed, but I wrote! I didn't break the chain of red xs on the calendar! Even though there were very few words written, it kept my head in the story and added to the pile that will someday be a novel. It's pretty clear I won't be able to finish this book in the month of March, but sometime in April seems very likely. That's still pretty exciting.

I have yet to publish a full-length novel. If this one turns out to be as fun and well structured as I'm hoping, then it will be my first published novel. I've written a few other full length novels, but they aren't publishable. There's some great stuff in them I'm proud of, but I still had a lot to learn about telling a story. I still do!

I'm also over halfway done writing another novel called "Zombie Super Powers" that I workshopped on The Roundtable Podcast, and that's what I'll be finishing next. I also finished a manuscript last year of a chapter book called "The Case of the Missing Snowman." That one is just waiting on illustrations to be finished. I'm the illustrator so I need to have a little sit down with myself and come up with a way to get those finished so I can publish that book.

If all goes well I will be publishing at least these three books this year:
  1. Haunted House Flipper (previously titled Ghost Hunting Realtor)
  2. The Case of the Missing Snowman
  3. Zombie Super Powers
