Update: Astrid Maxxim and her Undersea Dome

I know I’m all over the place lately.  I’ve been writing here and there on four different projects and have others that I’ve been thinking about.  But, I’m at the halfway point in the draft for Astrid Maxxim 2, and I still think I should finish it some time in March– maybe even before.

Astrid hasn’t taken off too much sales-wise, but I put 4 paperback copies of book 1 in the school library where I teach and they have all been checked out constantly for a couple of weeks now.  The kids seem to really like it.

I just finished chapter 8 of Astrid Maxxim and her Undersea Dome, and that means I’m almost halfway done.  I’m only working on it intermittently, as I also write The Young Sorceress.  It’s amazing how much easier Astrid is to write for me right now.  As I’ve said before, I have ideas for about 20 Astrid Maxxim books and plan to write at least two or three a year for a while.

On a related note, I’m almost keeping up with my New Years Resolution to write 3 pages a day.  I’m only about 26 pages behind.  Oh well, maybe I can catch up this summer.

Update: Astrid Maxxim and her Undersea Dome

I am currently nearing the end of chapter six of Astrid Maxxim 2.  I am working on it and The Young Sorceress, which means, when I get stuck in Sorceress, I write for a while in Astrid.  Astrid is easy to write and I imagine I will finish it first of the two.  There will be 20 chapters in all, so I’m just shy of 1/3 way done of the first draft.
