It’s been an amazing month. Because of people, mainly. Yes, I’m an introvert, but that doesn’t mean people don’t have their time and place.
But guys, I went to the first Story Embers retreat this month!
Some of you probably knew that already. I’ve posted enough pictures. I’ll post a few more here for good measure.
And then there was the afternoon we played phychiatrist and I got to go figure out what was wrong with everyone. Half the fun of that game is the ‘play-acting’ of the psychiatrist and I decided to ‘channel’ the ENFJ villainess who has been giving me so much trouble in my writing.
It was so much fun.
Other things added to the retreat. Such as an overnight train there and back. And discussions before dawn with the most haphazard collection of strangers about things as random as physics to the basis of morality. It was quite fascinating.
Traveling is only half of it. But the sad thing about all this fun (and the photo shoots, and chiropractor visits, and butchering chickens) is that my writing is suffering.
But I’m catching up on sleep this week, so next week I’ll be able to jump back in and hopefully get something done.
- Wrote up a short story, Last Pages
- Started Disguised for Peace
- Other… random things. I think?
Goals for July:
- Write to the midpoint of Disguised for Peace
- GO TO REALM MAKERS
- Figure out my writing plan for the next six months and decide if I want to start the next Legends of Light novella or work on my novel.
I need your help with this. I have been publishing a Legends of Light novella around once every sixish months. As readers, would you want another novella this winter. Or would you rather wait longer and get a completely separate, full-length novel say… next summer or fall? I await your wisdom/opinion (then will do what I think is logically best, but that’s beside the point. I need information from you to figure that out).
