I knew I can’t get much writing done with my spouse home on vacation, so I thought I’d read, instead. What better way to spend long, lazy summer days than reading a book? Shoveling dirt, breaking down a porch, and shoveling some more dirt if you ask our dear, old house. Thanks to the leaking water pipe, my summer included no reading and only a little writing.
Now things are back to normal, thank gods. My spouse returned to work and I to my daily routine. Some people need chaos to create, I require an orderly routine. With my spouse home on vacation, regularity is the first thing that gets ditched out of the window, and with it goes my concentration. It’s lovely to have him home but his vacations are also immensely stresful for me. Without routine, my focus is all over the place. I putter around, doing a bit of this and a bit of that and am unable to slow down for even a moment.
So, here I am, contently back to my guilty pleasure (which is writing)! I have two parts of the sequel done, and I am quite pleased with how the story is developing. I’ve probably said this before, but I plot as I go which means I can write a chunk and ditch it the next day when a better idea comes to mind. I’ve tried more disciplined methods, but always return to my own (bad) ways as that’s how I get the best result. Eventually.
I have high hopes of getting the raw draft of Slavemarked done by the end of September which means, the early reviewer version is ready by December. If you’d like to become an early reviewer, do check out the homepage (<- click, click) for more information! You don’t need to sign up blindly. There’s a FREE SAMPLE of the book AVAILABLE via PAYHIP! Downloading intends you to nothing, and you cannot know if you’ll like the book or not unless you give it a chance, so be brave and check it out!
Now, back to writing. I wish you all a magnificent week! May the gods and Fortunes smile at you.
