Wordcount Wednesday...




July is blurring by at a pace that almost prohibits updates.  On the novel front, I've polished off another nine chapters of Severed Dreams.  Still not the pace I'd like, but the final draft seems to be gaining momentum.  I revisited the whole YA sex debate and decided to stick to my approach in the last draft.  It tested well, and I have an easy out if a publisher wants to pull it a step back.

I've also read 132 of 181 stories for Dark Faith, everything up to the 4th of July.  As you can imagine, reading that much slush is a love/hate affair (our publisher likens it to panning for gold).  If you subbed before that date and haven't received a rejection letter, you're still under consideration.  If you're looking for suggestions,
beyond my prior post, I'd say submit sooner rather than later (and the shorter the better).  Just over one hundred days left!
