Trilogy update

After a few recent cuts in text, I'm at about 32,000 words on the first draft of the third book in my trilogy. Things are looking pretty grim for ole Kron Darkbow.

For some reason, I'm having the hardest time with this third novel. The first one was relatively easy, and the second one was a breeze (the plotline being rather narrow compared to the first and third books).

I wrote more than 40,000 words once on this third book, then scrapped almost all of that and started over. Now I'm 32,000 words in, and I like this storyline better, but I'm still not crazy about it. But then, I felt the same about the first book while writing it, and I've received some pretty favorable response from it.
