Status of Upcoming Novels

Originally Published On: Dec 25, 2016

I am creating this note for myself because it helps to go back and review what one has written so far. This is actually a proven technique that has helped me move forward by allowing me to reflect on accomplishments and goals. I suggest that you write something like this for yourself as well and refer back to it whenever you are ready to move forward with your projects.

Here is the current status of my upcoming novels. Its going a bit slow because I am in the middle of an intense career hunt and development phase.
