Coming Down the Homestretch, Time for Another Break

The homestretch in the title refers to the current fantasy novel I am writing, Out of Time, Book Three in the Great Library Series. Readers, I am at the exciting point where the end is in sight, and with some hard work, I expect to finish the book by the end of September.

This also means that it is time for another break in blog writing. Right now, all I can think about is my book, and focusing on Out of Time is the thing to do. I am very pleased with the progress I’ve made. I started writing Out of Time the second week in January, and here I am, eight months later, with the book nearly finished. The publishing date is fall 2020.

Because once the book is written, there is still much editing to do, and it will take many months to get Out of Time in shape. But what a good feeling it will be to have the first draft done.

I should be back to blogging sometime the end of September, but I might post a picture from time to time. We’ll see. I will continue to read and comment on posts written by my blogging friends.

I’ll sign out with some pictures of the fading garden’s still lovely flowers. See you all in a month or so.

    1. Love the photos of last blooms.Your head must be so full of your story that you are busy birthing. I am happy for you! Sending love always❀!!

  1. Best wishes for the last part of your book, I agree with other comments about how disciplined you are to do it, and it is always worthwhile writing for a young audience, so that they know just how good reading really is!

  2. I completely understand why you would need time off to concentrate on your book – it will be a lovely feeling when the first draft is done and dusted.
    Bon courage!

    1. Many thanks! This is the exciting time of writing a book. The seemingly endless editing that comes next, not so much. But it’s all part of the process. πŸ˜‰
