As is obvious from the title of this post, today I passed the million-word mark for this year. I'm a couple of weeks behind last year's pace, but that's all right. I never figured on writing a million words year after year, but now I think I'd like to accomplish that for a couple of more years, anyway. I think writing a million words a year for ten straight years would be pretty cool. If I can do that (and I already have close to a million words lined up for next year), I might give some thought to slowing down a little. I'm certainly not getting any younger.
As always, much of the credit for this is due to Livia, who absolutely makes it possible, and thanks as well to the editors who continue to have faith in me and the readers who enjoy my books. Without all of you I wouldn't be having such a great time spinning my yarns.
