I polished another chapter and brought my weekly total to 54 pages. I'm going to try and get another 2 chapters done before this challenge week is over. Then I'll only have 6 chapters left to Comlimentary Murder (soon to be retitled to Crystals and Corpses).

I have 2 1/2 months to finish Psionics Institutes. Goddess, I need to get onto that ASAP next week.

Just 1/2 a day left on Polish Week

14 more pages and as one chapter got polished. A total so far of 37 pages this week. I'm still cranking out on this today, and hope I might get to the 50 page mark before midnight.

Next Article Done

I just posted the next article in the RPG Class on Evolution. I don't know if anyone is doing it, but I am posting them anyway.

Now I can return guiltlessly to the polish of Complimentary Murder. Actually, I've decided to change the title when I submit it. I'm calling it "Crystals and Corpses". Then if it becomes a series, I'll keep the "Crystals and..." part.

A Little Bit At A Time

I managed to get through the first edit on Chapter 8. The more detailed edit comes next!


Yesterday I finished the polish on Chapter 7. (13 pages) For a total of 23 pages this week.

I have also outlined the post for the RPG class. I'm going to try and get that posted today or tomorrow.

Updated Website

I just updated my website. I cleaned out the 'lost' items from the blackhole. Those are the submissions given up for lost. I also updated my 'work in progress' page.

Catching Up

I finished the first round on Chapter 7 and part of the second round of edits. Boy, did this chapter need help. Goodness, gracious!

Polish Week

I got the extra chapter polished. I'm working on Chapter 7 now. There are 18 total. I'm mid-way through my first pass on Chapter 7. Every chapter gets 2 passes, one for plot flow and to check for errors. The second one for adding needed details.

I have gotten almost NOTHING accomplished writing-wise this week. Damn the troubles in my job and personal life!

Polish Week

I managed to get to the halfway mark of the section I was working on in Psionics Institutes.

Now it is Polish Week at Evolution, so I am determined to finish all the revisions for Complimentary Murder. Next week I want to begin submitting it to agents.

Aspen Short Film Festival still has not posted their guidelines yet. I'm chompping at the bit to send Levitation in.

I found a romance magazine that pays 10 cents a story, which is a lot! Most pro magazines only pay 3 cents a word. I am going to write a short story for them ASAP.

But, now... Back to Complimentary Murder!
