Deadline set for the first draft of Book 4

Ohio 4 process and deadlinesThis is more major writer neep, but any readers who are waiting for the books to come out might find this interesting, too.

I’m giving myself 3 days (including today) to outline and write PACTS (protagonist, antagonist, conflict, setting, twist) sentences and figure out how to work in REDACTED#1 and REDACTED#2. (The redacted stuff is two big plot elements that would be spoilers if I use either of the two words that define them.)

Both of these were supposed to be in Book 3, but a something bigger pushed them out. So Book Four has to start with them.
