3/21: 476 words. There are so many ways in which parenting makes you stronger. But it also gives you cracks in your emotional armor, and a prod in just the right (or wrong?) place will evoke a response that wouldn’t have happened in your pre-parenting days.

In today’s writing session, I got a little bit choked up. No tears, but I got that tightening in my throat. It’s only happened a couple of times while writing. Hopefully, it will trigger an emotional response in the reader as well.

Forging Bonds crossed over the 50,000 word threshold today. I know I’ve still got 25-30% of the book left to write, but even though this is my third novel, that still feels like such a significant marker.

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.
