Im still here.  My actual writing is as stagnant as ever, though I have come up with a smaller scale project Im hoping to use to shake out of it.

I'm on a tear recently.  Up to 55k - Admiral's Fall.  But its deader than a doornail in this part of the forum.  I really wish we could get some action going on in here again.

Keep after it Quantus.

My actual writing is on pause. I have a manuscript I'm looking to put up on Amazon soon and another soon after that. Soon I'll get to working on the third.

That's great o hear.  The more people who put some books up from the JB community the better as far as I'm concerned.

With that in mind what's everyone's genre?

I still stick my head in once in awhile. I finally got some killer art work for my novel The Forging and it is now on both Amazon and Kobo. I have been working everyday on the second novel in the series The Calling. And probably the most exciting news, I had to list royalties on my taxes. Professional author here now! Now I am just waiting for that rich and famous contract to come in.

Royalties? Professional author?

*starts humming "Somewhere" from West Side Story.

That'd be a dream come true for me. Like many Dresdenites, I do urban fantasy.

That's great to hear Gravesbane!  Keep after it.

King Shisa with amazon literally publishing anyone just keep after it.  Finish a draft and then start looking around for editing and beta help.  You'll get there before you know it if you refuse to stop working it!

In the middle of the final battle before the end chapters resolution and I'm feeling really hopefull.  This thing will probably clock in at something under 120k.  Here's hoping I can get it all done within a week and have another rough draft smashed out!!!

Smoked out a 10k day yesterday.  It went from 1pm to 3am with about four of reading in the beginning to decompress and an hour taken out for dinner but it was still a total crush.

Did up a few extra things and shot Admiral's Fall over to my brother at 130k.

Right now I'm 4k into the plot outline for Admiral 14.  I got stuck so I wrote out a few chapters, or half wrote them and that gave me ideas for a few more chapters.  I think I've got it a third plotted out and 2 plus chapters 90% written.'

Well done with your book Deposed King.

I did a little bit of writing yesterday. Sat outside in the sun at the Steampunk bar in Gothenburg, and wrote a little bit on my steampunk-story. Now I only need to get it from handwritten state to the computer and expand the chapter....

But it is a start at least

Good speed, is perchanse a bit much to say. ;) I have been working on it for more than 10 years. On, and (mostly) off again. But I have now during the past sessions done 6.5 handritten A5-pages (did some more writing today). The story itself is 40+ A4 pages and some 30 000 words.

Man, it's been awhile.....

Well, My writing has been going well. The fourth Outcast Ops novel I co-authored, Shadow Gov came out last month. I have a story in the Battletech Anthology, Legacy. I FINALLY completed the first draft of Merlin's Legacy, and I'm 50K+ into Merlin's Trial and I'm going to use November's NAWRNOMO to get a start on the sequel to Merlin's Legacy, Merlin's Staff.

I have a couple of other irons in the fire, but that's about it.

Well, I have managed to write a little bit every day so far this year. My Steampunk-story is currently at slightly over 33 000 words, and with afterword and so on, 48 pages.

Since I got stuck, I decided to skip some chapters and jump to a chapter near the end instead.  So now, I will just have to try and write the other stuff before that to link it up with the previous chapters...
