I know it’s hard to tell, but my word counter has moved! Yesterday I was laying about, feeling awful from a runny nose/sore throat/cold thingy, when inspiration struck…

I figured out where to go with Summermoon Fire, and I managed to synopsize eighteen chapters before the end of the day.

Gotta love it!

The last book of Song of the Arkafina will be out November 17th, all being well with Fictionwise.  This has taken a long time to happen, and I am pleased.  I am not sure which direction I am heading in at the moment.  I have recently started on Summermoon Fire, but haven’t gotten to the point where I felt I could update the progress bar.  I am still in the planning/synopses stage basically, and I am having trouble bringing the two parts of the story in line with each other.  It deals with the same characters, Suvi in the past and Tessa in the present.  Both will face new danger and heartache.  But whereas Tessa’s story will span just a few months, Suvi’s story covers many years.  Kind of difficult to integrate.

I am working on a couple of ideas though.  🙂

Almost exactly three months to the day I started writing, the first draft of Wintermoon Ice is done! Yaya!  I had actually planned to make it a little longer, but I when I finished a certain paragraph, all of a sudden it felt complete. I kept trying to add things after that point, and it just didn’t work.

Now I have to put it away for a couple of weeks, until I can look at it with a little bit of objectivity.  In the meantime, school holidays approach, meaning the house will be noisy and crowded.  Probably not the best time to start the sequel, Summermoon Fire.  But maybe I can write a short story or two…
