I’m rather despondent as I write this. On-going this, that, and the other thing. I can’t quite get to and back from the ocean on my own at the moment, because Reasons, but if I could I’d definitely run away today.
Well. Next week, maybe. Or the week after.
In the meantime, Book the Next has exceeded 40,000 words for the fourth time since we began this journey, and — has not only not (as yet, experience teaches me to say) been busted back to private, but has put on a little more weight. (Yes, Mixed Metaphor is today’s special. Why do you ask?) We have also reached one of the pivot scenes, so — yay, us. I’m taking the fact that we have reached this scene to mean that we’ve finally gotten the set-up right.
Fingers crossed, going forward.
The title for Book the Next continues to elude us. I’m thinking maybe we can do a Choose Your Own Title, sort of like Choose Your Own Ending, only you get all the fun upfront.
For those who have been playing Amazon Bingo at home — The Crystal Variation, including novels Crystal Soldier, Crystal Dragon, and Balance of Trade, by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller is currently on-sale at the Kindle store. Pretty good, for a book which shouldn’t have been “suppressed” in the first place.
No, I’m not feeling charitable.
Well. Snail mail has arrived while I was writing this. I note a lack of promised checks.
And on that note, I’m for the gym.
Y’all have a nice day.
