Another Day With You

Writing Update – July 4th

I hope you all are having a wonderful 4th of July holiday!

The past four days for me have been quite busy. I’ve been all over the place. I even celebrated my 29th birthday on Saturday. I can’t believe next year I’ll be 30. My dad actually took great pleasure in giving me crap about that fact yesterday morning. What a jerk! I will get him back. Mark my words.

Anywho, earlier this evening I declared on Twitter that I would finish the short story I’ve been working on called Another Day With You. AND I DID IT! *pats self on back*

I actually did a read through and made some changes, as well, before sending it off to my beta readers for their thoughts. I want to make sure I accomplished what I set out to with this story which began as a little kernel of inspiration a couple of years ago.

One of the changes I made was the name. Instead of Another Day With You, the story is going to be called The Gift. That name came to me this evening while showering, and it felt right, so I’m going with it.

I’m not sure what the timeline is yet for publication. It’s going to depend on any suggestions my readers make, as well as my editor. And I’m sure they’ll have some. They always do, which is why I love them. That being said, I would like to publish by the end of July, at the latest. Hopefully everything goes according to plan. Knock on wood.

Take care everyone, and I will be back with another update very soon.
