Hello SF Novel, My Old Friend…

Hello, SF novel, my old friend. It’s great to work with you again. I put you aside in April after writing the first four chapters so I could release a new speculative fiction anthology and write new six short stories, one of which took second place in a writing contest and was published in November. The rest will hopefully see print next year and in 2018.
With fresh eyes today, I reviewed those four chapters and remain as thrilled with them now as I was eight months ago. After some trimming and fine tuning, I’m even happier. Next step is to review the outline to refresh my memory on the story’s plot and direction. I have five days remaining in my holiday vacation, with at least two of those days carved out for writing.
I hope to finish the first draft of this novel in 2017. It’s one of my many personal goals for the year, even though I’ll be editing and project managing the third anthology in the Middle of Eternity series beginning in Q1. Oy!
 
For now, here’s an inspirational image that relates to the story. More news to come!
