Transition update…

I haven’t posted any updates here in a while, so I thought I’d pop in and let you all know how Transition is coming along.

This morning I finished chapter 14, so I’ve got two more chapters to go in this one and then I can start editing.  Two specific things have slowed down my writing as of late.  The first is that we’ve had some friends of ours staying with us for about the past month, and both they and we have new border collie puppies, which means I’ve had to spend a lot of time watching them, taking them out to pee, etc….

Then I had that little incident yesterday…

See, I was sitting here writing, and I was almost done with chapter 14 when one of the puppies went under the desk and turned off the UPS my computer is connected to.  Needless to say the computer died instantly, and I hadn’t saved yet since I’d started writing, so I lost it all.  Then I spent the rest of the day pissed off about losing everything I’d written, so I had to walk away from it and get a good night’s sleep before I was able to come back to it again.

Anyway, that’s what’s been going on.  I haven’t been able to write anywhere near as much or as often as I normally do with all the craziness and distractions going on around here, but I am making it a point to at least write some every single day.  I’ve already got a perfect ending for this book that’ll tie in perfectly with the next one, Travelers, which will be released on the same day as Transition since it’s already written and edited.  After that, I’ve got definite plans for two more books, and then we’ll see where things go from there.  I’m thinking that after two more I’ll either end the series, or put out one more book of short stories as a companion to the series.  We’ll just have to see how things go.

Anyway, that’s it for now.  I’ll try to be better about posting more frequent updates in the future.
