Having signed off on the first twelve chapters, and sent them off to my editors, the end is in sight. The first book in the trilogy will be eighteen chapters long. I'm struggling with a part of the book (in the middle-ish) which I initially thought was pretty good, but am now finding a little boring. Perhaps it's just me, so I'm going to see if the editors say anything.

I started a new job last week. My previous job, a student research kind of position, had me sitting at a desk for most of the day. My new job, a database and warehouse management kind of position, has me moving around a lot more. I am physically and mentally exhausted, which is making the editing process ten times harder because I want to come home and sleep every day. I'm hoping that the issue is related to the unfamiliar hours I am keeping (early morning to early-mid afternoon). I am a night owl, so I'm hoping that when I get to switch my shift, I will no longer have to fail at the endeavor of going to bed before the sun is down and waking up at the colon of dawn.

Here it is.

Well, here it is--yet another blog, like many other blogs I've started over the years to communicate with friends, organize my thoughts, and share things that I like.

This one, with any luck, will be where I organize my effort to finally publish the many manuscripts I've written over the years. My plan is to have my first book available by September 2011, with two more to follow by the end of the year.

Yesterday, I edited up to chapter 6; I still haven't figured out how many chapters the book will be. I initially wrote it in installments, and going back to add chapter breaks has been tedious.

That's all for now,
