…And Who Am I To Say No

Meet Sven, soon to become the most notorious man in all of Romancelandia.

Why? Because Sven says, “sweat!”

Over one hundred writers have already accepted Sven’s challenge to complete a novel in seventy days. I, in a fit of insanity, have joined them.

I’ll be the first to concede it was necessary. With five more Sanction books in the works, #5 in the series halfway done and stalled for plot-hole and dullness reasons, #2 needing a rather drastic rewrite, and numbers three and four PLUS the free read clamoring for their shot at the tattered braincell, it was time to commit to one project and get… it… done.

So I’ve committed to starting over with #2, as yet untitled. For me, titling books is like naming cats. You don’t inflict one upon it. The book reveals it when it’s damned good and ready. Sanction#2 will have to serve as title for now.

As for Sven, you’d think the camaraderie in such an endeavor would be motivation enough, everyone striving a/o suffering equally. Yet underneath it all, we know guilt at falling behind is the true motivator. And I really, really, really do not want to receive lashings from my fellow writers, so…

Wish Fiona and Dominic luck. They’ll need it.
