Feb. End month Status

Water is almost done!
Finished the confrontation but not the chapter so still 2 chapt to go! *spoiler* The bad guy in a zone and Elliot on the way to the hospital.  You know I'd never kill Elliot--Debbie would kill ME!
I passed 25,000 words in the middle of this chapt. so I surpassed Sands. But still it's going to be a short book.
For the next book I'm leaning towards Air/Wind. I can do the companion series anytime now that I got the first novelette out. A taste of what is to come, ayyy? :)
Once Air/Wnd is done I'll have the main books finished with Aether as an epilogue of sorts. Both Air/wind and Aether will bring certain things full-circle. Air/wind will resolve the problem of Santino while Aether will formalize the main characters union and launch them forward.
There may be more Elemental books ahead. :)
Flames and Waters can then be done before or after Aether. I ain't decided yet.
I'm starting a solar figure collection. I've got 7 so far. These are the newest two:

Midmonth status 4 February

Two or three more chapters and I'll be done with Water!


I don't think it will be as long as my other two books. I'm only 23,000 words into it so far. Sands was 21,000 and I don't know if this one will pass 25.000 words. Depends on the confrontation and follow-up.

The killer hours after kidnapping them has taken Elliot. So the next chapter is going to be the confrontation. *spoiler* I decided on the coma.

And Elliott  doesn't get out without some lumps. I put him through pain in Earth and I think he needs another dose. Just to keep him humble--human that he is.  LOL!

Still don't know which book I want to do next. Air/Wind or Flames. Both need to be done by the end of this year so I can publish at least one of them before the year is over. Though I did publish Sands already...Hmmm.

Sands and Water.  2 this year and 3 next?   Well, as long as both Elemental & companion series are out by the time I'm 50, I'll have fulfilled my promise to myself.

Flames and Waters --haven't touched them.

Air/Wind--messed around with the bible.

Aether--I have a basic idea & I'm going to do a bible soon. I want to publish this book on my 49 or 50th birthday. Whichever time it is done.

I do want to publish a book on my 50th birthday. A celebration & present together of both my birthday and of my writing. 

I'm doing this on my phone. Neat don't you think? Well, the draft I did on my phone. I had to go back on my computer and correct a few things. I'm still getting the hang of the new phone.

After B-Day Status

Well, I'm officially 48 now. 

I'm 2/3 of the way through Water.

They had their kidnapping and a brief confrontation with the killer, now they just got to catch him before he strikes again or gets to them again. Though I threw in a hint that maybe the killer will go for Elliot since he's not a vamp and thus easier to kill.  

I got two different endings in my head about Water. One is they have to kill the bad guy as he is committing another murder and the other is Sara puts him in a zone/coma.  There are pros and cons for both. A pro of sort is that he could come back in Aether and torment them.

Something new, something

Aether is still just ideas/scenes, nothing concrete.

Haven't touched Flames or Air/Wind yet. I still ain't sure which I'll do next. though I want to do Flames while it's still fresh in my mind, but Air/Wind would complete the Voice series--well except for Aether which is really an epilogue.

Had to get a new phone--my flip phone had about had it and was giving up the ghost. :)
The store I went to didn't have flip phones so I up graded to a coolpad.

I like it so far.

Well, 5 days 'til my birthday.

Getting closer to the big 5-0. Just a couple of years...

I want this series out before I hit 50.  Which I should if I follow my schedule.

Took a break from my books last night and read one by one of my fav. authors. So back to the grind today. LOL.

I'm 21,000 into Water. At the end of this chapt I want to get them kidnapped but it will shorten the book. But that's how my writing is going right now. The new wrinkle added a bit but...

I don't know. I keep seeing them kidnapped at the end of this chapt and the confrontation in the next. the kidnap scene will not leave me alone.  Maybe I should write it in the bible and get it out of my head so I can think past it. Hmmmmmm.

I want to get Water out by May and either Flames or Air/wind out before the end of the year. My publisher thinks I should finish my main series then do my companion series. I usually do which ever one strikes me first.

So I might do Air/wind, then Flames and Waters and leave Aether 'til last.

Gotta think on that.

I'm thinking of getting me a new phone for my birthday as my old one is acting up. So really I have to do something so why not a new one?  LOL  Miss technophob with a new phone, why do I think this will not end good?  LOL
