No, that's not an ironic title -- I have made a LOT of progress on the Endless Dream series. I have 6 chapters to go and I'm done with Book 4. NO blockers, so far at least.
And I have fully fleshed out ideas for 2 new mysteries next year, and I can't wait to get started on those.
So I'm on a big push to finish up. Of course, now I'll be writing in between holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up. But it's different for me now. Family is all scattered and it's just the DH and me at home. So it'll be very low key and laid back, and probably won't interrupt my schedule too much.
Keep your fingers crossed for me that I finish by December 1 -- I can't keep mine crossed, I'm too busy writing!
