I’m just dying of the plague.

Like the title says, I’m dying of the plague.  Yes, I know it’s actually just the flu.  The fever broke after the first day, but some other symptoms remained, and my throat is a thing of misery.  It’s hard to think, and harder to be creative.  For now, this means The Sand Flea’s editing process is on hold for a bit.

Update on The Sand Flea

The Sand Flea book is happening, everyone.  Ask is currently beyond the scope of the blog posts, and on his way to that lonely cliffside house with his usual crew plus two.  Once there, I have plans for his descent into the Giant’s Shield valley, and to an adventure beyond that may change the course of his life even more than previous events already have.

Anyway, now there’s a facebook for updates, as well!  Exciting, isn’t it?

NaNoWriMo Update

Well, faithful readers (holy crap, you guys are still giving me views), I have an update on the writing front!

I’m not a complete failure at the NaNo!  I’m a little bit ahead because I’ve been insisting on doing 900 words extra each day (minimum) for the sake of getting some buffer built up for the holidays.  My current count of 14,109 words is entirely thanks to this blog.  Without learning how to sit my keester (my spell check has got to be lying to me) down and write, I would not have made it this far.  Without The Sand Flea infecting me through this blog, I would have no story.

Without you lovely people who read this thing despite its deadness (you necrophiliacs, you), I wouldn’t feel that extra little push of peer pressure that helps me get things done.

Right now, I’m completely rewriting The Sand Flea.  So far, much is similar, and after editing, I’m going to work with my beloved editor and best friend, and work out how to make this novel version suck less.  Then, I’m going to hunt down one of my friends that is awesome at murdering stories with editing, let that friend go crazy, and work more from there.

Eventually, I will get this published, and when I do… well, the people who follow this blog will be the first I tell about it (other than the people who overhear my wild squealing over my book coming out in print).

If I can, I’ll try to figure out a discount for people who come to this humble blog, as well!

Dance Break– Updated

I changed my mind about taking a break.  I’ll be a tad slow catching up, but I have no intention of taking a break.  I just need to get my act together and buckle down, distractions be damned!
