For the many of you who in my imagination are wondering how progress is going for Fly Like a Penguin, Volume 3, (tentatively called) The Last Wave, here is an update.
So far I’ve written a bit over 15,000 words, which means I have quite a way to go. I just read through the whole thing, and I like it so far. I liked Volume 2 better than Volume 1, and I think I like this one as much as Volume 2. This one is the most complex.The story has a lot of pieces, kind of like a puzzle. They all have to come together to fit into the ending that I have planned. I’m pretty confident that it will happen. I just have to get to it. I’ve taken a break from the writing, but it’s time to get back to it.
It took me over 15 years to write the first book. Most of the second one I wrote in less than a year, but with the proof-reading and rewriting it took a few more years. I hope to finish this one by next summer. I’ve already gotten behind my previous schedule. I keep getting distracted. Onward and forward, as they say.
