Weekend Update: So Many Words

Time for a little update on my latest projects! I’m nearing the 60,000 word mark for my work-in-progress, Creed: Mandate of Heaven. That’s about half as long as His Name Was Zach is and barely more than a third of the final word count for Her Name Was Abby 😮

But those were epics, and the Creed books are looking to be much shorter, most likely no longer than 75,000-80,000 words each.

Unfortunately my computer decided to take an hour and a half this morning to update, so I wasn’t able to get any additional writing done. But I’m really excited about where this story is going and it’s rapidly approaching the climactic showdown! I can’t wait to see what happens!

Maybe I’ll even share a sneak-peek here…

Anyway, that’s my writing update. Regarding my personal life, if you remember last week, my dad came down with Covid-19 and appears to have cancer in his kidney and lung. My mom also tested positive for Covid last Sunday. But both appear to be asymptomatic and are actually cleared to return to work this week, so that’s good.

And today my dad goes in for a biopsy to get a better look at his cancer situation, hopefully the doctors won’t find any surprises there. I’ll keep you all informed as soon as I am.

As always, thank you all for taking just a couple minutes of your day to read my blog! It means the world to me and I couldn’t do this without you.

  1. Wow, an hour and a half update… I didn’t know dial-up internet was still available. 😀 Yes, I admit, I’m spoiled having FiOS the last few years. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on the writing, and here’s hoping the overall news continues to be good with your family.
