I'm 11k into a new Gamer Girl book. They don't sell as much as my other books, but they are a lot of fun to write. I'm aiming for 50k and I hope to finish the first draft by Thanksgiving. I'm posting here to spur my lazy butt to continue writing and not let RL issues and plans derail my efforts. It's so easy to let holiday planning and events take me away from writing. So I started this back in September, but got derailed with a new shiny (Portal Fantasy, which I finished). Now the PF is off to the editor, the cover is made, and I can turn my full attention back to writing. I've re-read what I've already written to remind myself where my MC has been, and today I started writing the story again. If I can finish the 1st draft by Thanksgiving, then I think I can publish in December. Depending if I have the money for my editor and a cover.
