This year is a royal mess …

I’m a total wreak. I’m an emotional roller coaster. But I’m getting better. (At hiding it or moving on, I haven’t decided yet.) My hands are better. The skin is thin and easily irritated, so no wire working for a while longer. But I have no excuse for not writing. I admit, I was very depressed about not being able to work and worried about our bills, but we’ve been blessed. A stocked pantry, a filled fridge, enough to cover our bills until the new school year begins. Despite the paranoia, the craziness and the sadness we are making it.

BI have simple ideas for the cover art for my novella series; The Amulet. All centered around my yin/yang amulet. This is an idea for book 2. I’m planning on completing the series before releasing the first book. A set of four in total so far….

Investigation into novellas …

Investigation into novellas …

Yes. I’m sorry. I’m not making progress as I have in the past. But I’m still writing and learning how to better my stories. Going to try some new things – like a serial (?). Maybe. Smaller bites seem to be the way things are going rather than a large meal. So the plan is to submit a story that’s to be broken into maybe four or five smallest portions. Cliffhangers (?), maybe. Maybe not. The Amulet first, then the final Red Summer Book. Not going to do too much until The Amulet is complete, then it’s time to investigate this new publishing platform.

It’s April.

On top of my computer dying a violent and horrific death, six new tires and  a new tune up later. I am sick. The Pollen here in Georgia is deadly. I haven’t had a voice for almost two weeks. But I’m writing! Just not on what I wanted. I had planned to finish Gray Spring first, but it’s hard to force the ideas to come out. The Amulet is flowing nicely and an actual ending to it is truly in sight, so I’ll continue it for the time being. The problem is that money? For the editing? I’m gonna have to come up with something quick and that’s depressing. I got the idea of posting it as a serial, maybe. One chapter each week … still haven’t decided, but that’s if the money doesn’t come through. I’m looking forward to seeing this finally coming to an end, but nervous about everything else. We’ll see ….

My mind has been expanding on my new world in ‘The Amulet ‘. There will be three books, each stand-alone stories and yet connected. I have already outlined each story and I am biting at the bit to get them started. Now if only I could take a break from my responsibilities to complete just one of them!
