Hello to any and all readers floating around cyberspace!
I’ve tried to keep up with a pretty steady stream of posts on my blog, and I think I’ve done a decent job. Normally, Monday would be the “Writing Mistakes” day, but I shan’t be able to do more than offer this post this week.
Here’s the “why”:
- I got a pretty big job that needs to be done ASAP. This is in addition to all of my regular writing work, so I’ve got to fit it in. That means I’m going to be slammed with work, not really giving me too much time to fit in the writing that I love.
- I’m trying to finish Book 2 of the Last Bucelarii series. If you’re a bit obsessive compulsive like me, you’ll know just how stressful it can be to have unfinished business. I’m trying to finish up the rough draft of Book 2 of the series so that I can get back to work on Book 1 of the series. I’ve gotten all the beta readers’ comments back, and it’s time to do the second draft of Book 1. Once it’s done, it’s off to an editor for a final polish, a bit more work, and ready to publish. (Still not sure if I’m going the self-pubbed route or looking for a traditional publisher, but more on that in the future…)
Anyways, I just wanted to let you all know what was going on with me so that you wouldn’t think I had abandoned you.
The good news is that this extra work means that my financial situation will improve a bit, which means more ability to write in the future. Currently my fiction-writing career isn’t quite as lucrative as my content-writing career, so the latter is funding the former.
Thank you all, and see you next week!
