Well folks, I’m nearing the end of Mysterious Ways! There have been a few surprises along the way, one being the fact it’s still titled Mysterious Ways. But it’s not over ’til it’s over, not to surprise you or anything!
One thing that has been fun, is playing around with the Find and Replace feature. Pressing ctrl+F allows me to keep track of characters, frequent flyers (words or phrases I use too much), and even my profanity use! Here’s my data on that, up to Chapter 23. If you’re still living under your parent’s roof, please DON’T LOOK NOW!
Okay, I’ll just abbreviate- From most to least, and I’m shocked bitch (oops) came in fourth

Well, I originally outlined 24 chapters, but that is not going to be enough. It looks like it will be 26-28 chapters, and I’ve been keeping track of ideas for either a sequel or a prequel, or both. I’ve also got ideas for a couple other stories that have nothing to do with Mysterious Ways, so let’s just hope I don’t lose my drive like I did with this blog.
Once I’m finished with the first draft I will read through and edit for spelling, grammar, repetitiveness, and those times the cat jumped
on the keyboard without me knowing. Then, I will be looking, and probably begging, for editors, so if you would like to and are able, please comment here or message me on my Contact page.
