A Change of Pace

A Change of Pace

      So, I have been very quiet this month, haven’t I?
      Its okay – I just have little to say. It has been a rather strange few weeks or so and I am sort of at a loss at the moment.
      Maybe part of it is mourning the Harper Voyager thing. I can admit that, yes? I really was getting more and more certain as each week slipped by that This. Was. Going. To. Happen.
      …and then it didn’t.
      And its cool. I know “Incandescence” needs a bit more tweaking. I’m going to try and recruit a content editor as soon as “Inferno” is done – so that I can have a professional, critical eye read it and tell me what works and what does not.
      Still, for all that I am a wee bit depressed about the WIPs, I am doing loads of writing these days. None of it ‘professional’ and all of it just for funsies with my gaming friends… but it is writing, it is fun, and I am really enjoying it.
      Now for the ‘change of pace’.
      This week I began a new shift at work. And Jack, silly man, started a new semester at college (I was supposed to do as well, but alas, money…). So we’re shifting things up, getting our ducks in a row for this new schedule we’re living, and basically – just figuring it out as we go.
      Its like, we 20-somethings again.
      …only we’re 30-somethings.
      Yikes.
      There will be new snippets and stuff in the coming months.
      I just need to complete “Inferno” first.

Love & Rainbows,
P.P.

Disco Inferno

Disco Inferno

      At last, weeks of procrastination have finally come to an end.
      I’m officially back to work on “Inferno”. For better or worse, I’m going to finish this modern-day mageborn story and move on to something else. I cannot keep splitting my focus like this – I end up getting nothing done (unless you count many hours wasted on Facebook, playing Draw Something! on my phone, or watching entire seasons of TV shows on Netflix in binge sessions… which I do not).
      I did not update the word count in the right-hand column because I have removed more than I’ve added in the past few hours, but still – progress!
      I’ve run into a few continuity problems – nothing major, but it is slightly annoying that I did not catch them in the first draft.

((ARGH! The remaining 500 words of this post was lost in a connection issue – my host is experiencing all sorts of trouble today. Darn it… I’m not rewriting it, but suffice it to say: Jack is starting a new project we’re excited about, Camp NaNo in July is going to be fun, and Inferno is well on its way.))

Love & Rainbows,
