I just crossed the 20,000-word line! I don’t know why, but it is thrilling every time I reach this point. I could write 100 novels and I would still be excited at every milestone. It really is a beautiful process.

She turned back to Perry. “We’re going to be at Malden Street Studios tonight. Meet us there.” Giving him the address, she marched through the front door.
“Whoa,” Koty called after her.
She jogged down the front steps. Quickening her pace, she hurried away from Perry’s apartment building.
“Hold on.” Koty caught up with her. He shot her a perplexed look. “Why did you invite him?” Continue reading
