It’s been quiet around here recently because I’m still down in Palmyra and my time to write is limited. With the limited time I do have, I’ve been focusing on writing stories rather than posting here, which is actually a good thing—I’m not going to build a successful writing career scribbling here.
Since finishing the draft of that story that had me stuck, the flood gates have opened. I’m working on two stories simultaneously. That’s a rarity for me, and I’m not sure how it’s going to turn out. I’ve had both story ideas for some time; I just wasn’t able to focus on them until now. So far, I’m moving between the two stories with ease, writing a little each every morning. A draft of one is almost done—maybe another couple of days and I’ll be there. The other one still has a ways to go; I can tell, because the characters continue to reveal surprising new facets to me and the piece continues to evolve in my head. For now, I’m going to continue to roll with it and post here as time and whim permit.
