Novel/Progress Updates!

Updates for my novels and January’s Writing Goal!

Hi all,

Long time no post! I’ve been really busy (read lazy and unmotivated) in the doldrums of January. I continue to be finishing up the last edits to Antioch Burns, and have found two beta readers to double check the changes :-).

In addition, I’ve continued to work in a tiny amount on Iron Tribune, so here’s a tiny bit of what I’ve worked on!

“Oenipons Central Station! Oenipons Central Station! Train will depart in two hours.”

The young tribune shambled to his feet, shaking the sleep from his system. The cold air smelled of oil and grease, but still felt wondrous after enduring hours in the stuffy train car.

“Shoulda opened th’ darned window earlier.” Senior Centurion Gwendyrn grumbled as the noise of their arrival finally woke him. Legionnaires crowded into the passageway, making their way towards the platform. Voices raised in complaint in the passage provided early warning of a visitor.

“Sir, Tribune Caesar, sir?” The youthful voice announced the arrival of the XIII Germania’s newest officer, Nicephorus Theophilus. The junior tribune saluted briskly, unaware of the annoyed stares leveled at him as he blocked the hallway. His loud voice was especially unwelcome to the centurion, who was always slow to wake. Julius sighed inwardly as he set about soothing the youngest son of the Governor of Noricum.

So you can see I have been hard at work (sort of, maybe?)

Anywho, here’s the goal for the rest of January.

Finish edits to Antioch Burns.

Finish Chapter One of Iron Tribune.

I plan to create writing goals all year long. If I follow all my goals, I should have many more completed novels by the end, right?
