Short posts mean I’m working hard, they mean I haven’t taken time out to think up something to talk about that has to do with writing, research, editing, plots, characters or anything else that crops up in the life of a writer – However, they don’t mean I’m ignoring you.
Those who have been following what I’ve been up to lately know that I hit a snag, the fixing of which turned into a complete disassembly of all the work done so far on this project (book 3 – The Bastard Line, due out in July!). Needless to say, there is currently a lot of scrambling going on to get back on track.
The best I can do is keep you up to date while I get on with it.
I can at least see my way clear now, although there is still much to be done. I know that some of you are waiting for this book to come out. Rest assured, all is not lost yet. I am not convinced I’m going to be late.
At this point, I admit, it really is too early to call it. However, in the last six months, I’ve had more time off that I intended. First I took a healthy break after having written two huge books back-to-back. That lasted a month. Later, I got sick, which lasted another month, and there’s been a slow start-up (or slow-going) since then.
When I take all that into account and see how far I’ve come, in what amounts to four months or less, the six months in front of me looks huge with ample time to make it.
That’s what I’m banking on. Anyway, it helps to “see” it happening, which I do.
And that’s my waffle for today. Tomorrow I have something silly for you.
