Most of you have been with me since before I finished my first book. One of the habits that I developed during that wonderful experience was that I tended to finish chapters late on Friday nights while other people my age were out and about and enjoying their summer vacations. Well, I think the last two chapters I’ve written have mostly been written on Friday nights.
So, onto the newest chapter. It’s chapter nine in my second Andrew Banks novel. And I kind of lied to you all when I told you that chapter eight had Banks seek out his homicide detective friend for advice. That actually happened in this chapter. He was unable to give Banks any new information but he was able to track down a detective he knows in Austin who is more than willing to help Banks out as the case takes him away from home. There were some other happenings, BUT I can’t give everything away, right?
Also, due to my lack of writing lately I’m going to give myself a set number of words to write before midnight next Friday. The number I’ve come up with is 10,000 words. It’s not astronomical, but it’s also not something I would do in just one or two sittings. Hopefully it gives me a much needed jumpstart!
