I wanted to get out a quick update…
Yes I’m still alive. Yes I’m still working on chapter 31. I know I had said I wanted it done by August. I know it’s been 6 months since ch. 30.
A few things…
from really bad writer’s block. It’s not that I don’t want to write. It’s that when I sit down to do it and I start typing; what comes out either sucks or I just read it and go “this is shit” and I stop. I suffer from anxiety and depression. Like most authors, I have my own set of issues and demons that I battle daily. Most of you understand this, but there are some who just don’t seem to get it. What’s its like to be me. That I have a gift but it’s not always as easy as tying one’s shoes. Sometimes I can whip out 5 pages of pure gold in a half hour. Other times I’m lucky to get 5 sentences I like.
I appreciate the ideas and suggestions that are left here in comments and in email. Please don’t stop posting those. At the same time, please don’t be upset if I may not use your idea, or if i change it. I cant please everyone.
As for when 31 will be complete .. how far am I? right now the draft is about 11 pages. I have a few more things to write in. I’m in the process of moving to a better apartment this week. Once all of that BS is over with, I hope to get my head back in the game.
Thanks for your patience! Good things are on the way.
