Just a quickie, its 4am, and I’m on a writing and editing binge. I’ve finished editing the second chapter of my grand space adventure, and I’m half through editing the first chapter (in reverse order because I wanted to add a few words to the second chapter, and that may have taken a few hours more than I expected once I got going).
All being well, I will be launching the first chapter this week, and the second chapter on Saturday. I’m excited to be unveiling this story, and introducing the characters, most of whom should (but I make no promises), be around for most of my protagonist’s life.
And just to prove, I’m really not slacking, I’ve got a music post planned, and a couple of new poems – though I’ve yet to start work on an a poem that really means a lot to me. I’ve got a month to write something for the birth of my niece – and I want to pass on wise words, sage advice, and a bit of myself – I think I haven’t started because I’m not sure I can live up to my own pressure. I’m excited to be an uncle, and of course I want to be the best uncle I can be (since I have no kids of my own, and no plans to the contrary), and I want to make sure my niece wants for nothing. Should anything ever happen to me, I want her to always have this.
So yes, welcome to my life with writers block thoroughly behind me, and a summer of writing ahead.
