Day Job Stuff is keeping me on my toes, that’s for sure. A few things have come up that I’m having to deal with in different ways. (Yes, I’m being vague for the moment.) A few personal things have been serving as distractions as well. Nothing horrible, of course. Just some irritations, decisions, and changes.
On top of that, I’m going to need to delay the release of In My Blue World. I don’t want to, but I’d rather delay it than rush the job and put out a half-assed and ultimately unfinished novel. I won’t do that to y’all, it wouldn’t be fair. So for all of you who might have picked up my freebie card at Worldcon with the lovely ‘Coming Autumn 2018’ sticker slapped on the back, I’m afraid it’s probably looking more like ‘Coming Early 2019’ instead. Sorry about that. But I promise you won’t be let down by the improved and revised version!
Which brings me to determination: I’ve got a LOT on my plate right now, and strangely enough, I work really well when that happens, as long as I’m completely in charge of it all. [If I’m constantly distracted by unexpected changes, that’s another thing entirely.] So a lot of things juggling in the air, but I’m bound and determined to make it all work. Such is the life of a writer: stubborn will and determination to keep going despite the odds.
Hopefully in a few weeks things will be back to normal and I’ll be able to breathe and take a break again…!
