Just about a month ago, I attempted to walk around a box and missed, breaking the fourth toe on my left foot. This rather painful annoyance meant that I was banned from going to the gym. I wasn’t allowed to do much walking, and I was supposed to stay put and keep my foot elevated.


And, to my surprise, it also meant that I’d be finishing writing book a solid month ahead of schedule.


Ashes and Light looks to be on track to be called a draft sometime this week.  There’s about a chapter and a half to go, and two sex scenes to polish.


I think this might be the fastest that I have ever finished writing a manuscript. It will be probably a few days under thirteen weeks.


Now, I’m still working on Written in Water. That may go to the end of December. Or it may not — there are perhaps three or four chapters left before I call that one a draft, and start in on Forged in Fire. But I am not scheduled to start Forged in Fire or Table of Stone (the last Swords of Charlemagne book) until January, after school starts up again.


So breaking my toe also means that Cookiepocalypse this year is going to be amazing!
