Yesterday, I finished my new draft of Inevitable Dusk. I'd say that about 85% of it is totally rewritten. I have tons of editing to do and plot holes, etc. to fix, but the first step is done!

So, I'm going to set aside the draft for a couple weeks (which will take self-restraint) before tackling editing to get a little distance from it. Maybe even for a month.

For now, I'll probably resume work on Unquenchable, which is the first book in my chick-lit series. It's a more lighthearted story than Inevitable Dusk. I'll also try to do some more substantial plotting for the sequel to Inevitable Dusk, tentatively to be called Through a Mirror Dimly.

I've hit the 50,000 word mark for the new draft of Inevitable Dusk. Whoo! It might be close to the original count of 80,000, even though most of the material is new or greatly altered. And then there's the sequel. I think 75k-80k is a good length to shoot for, for both of Acio's books. Then I can move onto Sammy's story.

So, I think I can finish Inevitable Dusk by the end of the year. I'd like to finish Tsirris by the end of next year, along with Unquenchable (a book I haven't discussed here yet).

It's almost four in the morning so I should try to sleep.
