About to settle in to do some more work on Secret Project No. 1. As of this writing, it’s sitting at roughly 39,300 words, which, according to my word count-o-meter, means I’m 78% percent done. I’m hoping to finish this book by Monday at the latest, hopefully sooner.

It’s coming along well. I’m taking things scene by scene while keeping a general direction in mind. This book is a definite departure compared to my usual stuff, which is good as I think it’s important for writers to try new things. I hope you’ll all agree it was a good move come publication time.

I’ll drop another hint as to what I’m cooking up here in the North . . .

It involves armed forces.
