I am back
I have been less than communicative lately, if by less than communicative you mean dropping off the face of the Earth. I’ve been traveling and working and taking care of family, all of which militate against writing productivity, to be sure. But the honest truth (as opposed to sneaky dishonest truths) is that I was a little burnt out there. Trying to manage all the mundane aspects of my life and produce decentish fantastical prose was getting to be a little much. So I took a break.
And I have to say, it was nice. I didn’t think about the Veil War at all for most of two weeks. And when I did resume thinking about it, there was no longer the pall of dread that had attended such thoughts back in June and July. A whole bunch of things that I had been hung up on are now no longer hangups, and for the last couple days I’ve been happily typing.
Regular chapter postings will resume next Thursday, and I’ve already got that chapter in the bag. I hope to push out another chunk of the sword story this weekend, but no promises on that one. I also have some posts cued up, and I’ll be looking for some feedback from you, the long-suffering reader.
Thanks for hanging in there!
Facing and admitting burn-out is huge. Take a breath and welcome back.
Glad to know the burnout wasn’t permanent! Looking forward to new chapters and backstory!
Thanks, much appreciated.
There was just enough going on that I couldn’t devote enough real effort to writing. And then the guilt…
I swear, I have a Jewish/Catholic mother living inside my head, despite the fact that I am neither Jewish nor Catholic.
About time you whiner. Just spit on it and then rub some dirt in it by all that’s Holy and Right!
I knew I could expect sympathy and a kind word from Wardog.
Life…gets in the way sometimes it does…Is why it is a mystery!!!
Good to see you back
