Still Alive

Been busy with my non-writing half of my life so not much to report.  My writing brain is back, so there's that.  Just about finding the focus and time to get into the next book.  As is I've been dealing with birthdays, family visits, dental appointments, and still have the dreaded Jury Duty at the end of the month to deal with.

My hope and plan is that after I convince the government to tell me to fuck off already, is to start Gush in May.  Or restart Gush, whatever.  I really like a whole unobstructed month to begin a project.  This month...very obstructed, so I've just been faffing about on the two KH novellas I had ideas for.  Which are also coming along.

But so far, no idea when any of this will be done, or when it being done I will start on FM7...

But my brain is back and working, so that's an important improvement over Feb and March!  Even when a writer isn't writing, they're always thinking and there's a whole lot of that to do to make sure a novel is the best it can be.

  1. Glad to hear your head's getting back to a good place! I don't know what jury duty is like in the States, but over here it can be quite good fun...
    Quick question, if I may - are you still looking at print-on-demand at some point, as I notice it has dropped off your status update list?

    1. They've disappeared because I finished formatting them. Just waiting on the new covers coming in Aug/Sep and then I'll start putting them through Createspace.

    2. Awesome - looking forward to having them on my shelf (and yes, I'm old-fashioned!)

  2. Glad you're still kicking! I was initially not very interested in Gush, but then I read the bonus at the end of FM6 and am just as excited to read it as I am for more of King Henry's antics. Good luck with a busy month!
