I continued to check things off my list of changes and additions for Tucson. When I’m done, I’ll go through the story a couple more times to make sure everything looks good before giving it to my editor. And then he can rip it apart.
I didn’t write anything new for the EG story today. Instead, I went back and reread what I’d already written. There are a few additions I need to make there, too. But overall, I like how that story is coming along.
I also downloaded a new template for this site, as well as ConquerPublishing.com. Look for major changes to both sites over the next few weeks.
I haven’t written for a couple days. I’ve been doing some research for EG and writing beats for the remainder of the story. If everything goes right, I should have the first draft completed by next Friday, the 12th. But no promises.
I also haven’t been working on Tucson. No excuses. Just been a lazy week. And to think it started off so great. Anyway, I plan to have my changes and edits done by next Friday. And that is a promise.
Also, please sign the petition to make September Dystonia Awareness Month, http://1.usa.gov/1lttlke. Dystonia is a movement disorder that I have dealt with for the past 35 years. Dystonia strikes 1 in 600 Americans, more that ALS and MD combined.

Worked on the new story this morning. I still don’t have title for it yet. And my working title gives too much of the story away. I’ll just refer to it as EG from now on.
I started to change, add to, and edit Tucson after work today. I knocked a couple things off the list of changes I need to make. But they were the easy changes. Tomorrow the fun starts.
I also want to change a character’s name. But that should be easy enough. I just have to find the right name. Right now this character’s name is very similar to the bad guy’s name, and the bad guy is already established in my mind.
