Well, life has been very busy for me lately. As you may have read in my previous update, I have had sick children – to include a broken leg – a wife in a car accident, and issues with the Veteran’s Administration clogging up my time and stressing me out. As such, I was not writing at a level I wanted.
Things are starting to smooth out, however, and I hope soon to be back at full steam. I’m still writing, but not doing my usual several-thousand words a day. No, for those of you wondering, I have not started on “Redeemer: Book III of The Serpent’s Song” yet, beyond outlining. You will know the day I start it, I assure you. And, as with “Snake Charmer”, you will see regular updates on my progress.
Speaking of The Serpent’s Song series, “Firedancer” was free on Amazon last weekend and did pretty good. “The Duel” was free the weekend before that, and did equally well. This weekend it will be “Snake Charmer” – free from Friday through Sunday on Kindle.
Some of you may remember that my musing on writing action using Iceberg theory became a featured article on the “Eat, Sleep, Write” Podcast website. Well, in the intervening weeks, Adam, the editor over there, asked if I had any fiction he could put up. As it happened, I did – part of “Competition” I have yet to release anywhere else. So I now have some fiction as well as a lesson featured on “Eat, Sleep, Write”. You can find it here. For those of you who have followed the previous sections of “Competition” (“Reggie” and “Collared“, respectively) this segment, “Alice” falls between those two to complete the narrative as far as I have released it.
I also put out some more work in my fan-fiction piece, “Transitions”, set in the universe of the up-coming game, “Star Citizen.”
So, all in all, I’ve managed to be fairly productive despite the real world interfering. And I hope to push myself back into full-time writing ASAP.
