So here I am, a bit late. I promised to be back on Monday, but Monday wasn’t a good day. It started with people visiting our neighbors keeping us awake past twelve on Saturday and Sunday. But just as things settled down on Monday morning, a huge thunderstorm, the likes I have never seen in the Western Cape, came over us.
Our cats were like: Meh.
Our dogs… Two were in a blind panic. The third was completely confused by the drama, which, in his barking to understand what was up with his buddies… added more drama.
I think I fell asleep at 4am.
I managed to get work done, but when it came to actually writing anything (blog, fiction, whatever)… no go. By lunch time, I was a zombie.
Needless to say, I’m so behind on my goals that I have to hit 3k words every day for the rest of the month to get anywhere approaching the goal I’d set.
I’m feeling good about my rewrite, though. So I might just make it. If I don’t have any more horrific late nights to screw up my writing routine. But yeah. So far, I’ve written almost 1500 words today, so I should be making progress.
In somewhat unrelated news, I’m struggling to decide if I should still publish Endless this year. The plan had been to have it out by end November, but… it’s hard to set a date when it isn’t clear on when you can actually pay for your cover so that you can use it.
The good news is, I’ll be getting a salary real soon. The problem is that the date isn’t finalized. Which means I can’t finalize a date. Which means that I can’t set up anything approaching marketing around the launch…
*Glances up.* How are you doing?
