Since I am a civil defense litigator in my day job, we live and die by the billable hour. Billing 160 hours in a month is roughly equivalent to 4 40-hour work weeks. August was so incredibly busy that I ended up with 220 billable hours.

With such a hefty work schedule, there wasn’t much time or mental energy for creative work. Still, I was able to write 3.5 chapters of my fourth novel. And I recorded six episodes of the new podcast I’m co-hosting with Barbara Hinske — The Write Approach — which launches on September 6.

I also managed an appearance on The Indy Author Podcast, where I talked bout my upcoming non-fiction book, Write Your Novel One Day at a Time.

I’m hoping for a tamer September.

Don't miss anything about projects I'm working on, new books you should be looking for, and articles about the craft and business of writing. I'll also give you the first three chapters of my novel, Vulcan Rising.
