Whee! Went on a nice writing tear to push myself a lot closer to the 30,000-word mark. I’m back on target!

It was a nice achievement on an otherwise lazy day. I wrote until I ran out of steam, and now I have to figure out where I want the story to go next. I’m torn between a totally outlandish plot development and a more conservative one. I’ll probably end up going for broke, and going all the way “out there”.

While I categorize the book as a thriller/suspense novel, it does contain some elements of speculative fiction. It’s kind of fun to sit and think of things I’d like to see happen as technology becomes more advanced and more integrated into our society, and write them into existence. Perhaps one day, life will imitate art (but only for some parts of the novel!); for all I know, some of the things I create in this novel are being worked on, as we speak, in some underground, tricked-out laboratory bunker somewhere.

Anyway, time to relax on this rainy evening with a nice ebook, while I keep an eye on some basketball games (gotta get NBA League Pass next season!).  Keep plugging on your books, blogs, or both.

Thanks for stopping by.
