Officially, yes. That means that at 4:30 this morning, after the cat woke me up, I couldn't get back to sleep. I said to myself--what are you waiting for? You've made up excuses all summer. It's time to sit down and write.
Then my alter-ego said--You're crazy. Go back to sleep. You're going to be dead tired.
So at 5:00 am I found myself with the computer on, creating a new folder and typing the title of my next book. A boring title, but there's nothing I can do about it: ALMA THE ELDER.
This will be book two in the series, Prophets of the Promised Land. I wrote for a couple of hours and by 7:30 I had written 2,000 words (about 7 pages). I figured that if I can write 1,000 words a day, 5 times a week, I'll be done before Halloween. Then, with edits I can turn it in before Thanksgiving!
But I don't plan on getting up at 4:30 every morning.
