Writing Quest Update: October 2022

Hello Family, Friends, and Fans!

Mental Health:

I’ve got to be honest with you: September was rough. Mentally, physically, and emotionally, I feel like I was run over by a bus, then stomped on by a stampede of Clydesdales, and finally got peeled off the sidewalk piece by piece with a snow shovel. In other words, I’m not doing so well.

What has gotten me through each and every day was the promise that tomorrow is a new slate, a new day, a new chance. Even if it did suck, again, there was always tomorrow.

Writing:

I have been slowly working on the third draft of Poseidon’s Pearl by reading and highlighting everything I want to change. And then a peer reads my writing and now I have to fix a major plot hole in the setting, in River’s character arc, and basically re-write the book. But it will be SO MUCH BETTER when I do. And I’m saving all of the old versions, too, so if I think I over edited it, I can just pull up a previous draft and go from there.

I am also drafting the first draft of the sequel novel to my published short story. The story of the one Pyro that survived. More to come on this later.

Thank you for keeping up with me!
