I mean, this is pretty much a small update blog. I bribed you here with a picture of my puppy in her hoodie. Further in the blog is the full picture.
I spent most of April chipping away at Bitter Discord. It’s so close to done right now, but will bleed a little into May (like 2-3 days). I’ve never been this behind before. A couple of weeks, maybe a month, but nothing I couldn’t reasonably catch up with. Now, I’m going to be catching up all the way through July. That’s how behind I am.
There wasn’t even much I could do to stop this from happening either. What has been hard is trying to little by little rebuild my writing endurance and get something done. It’s been hard managing the recovery pain and the work without screwing up the recovery. Add to that, the longer I try to write a book, the harder it gets to write. I get bored and tired of it. I am very excited to move on to other projects.
On top of that, late April had a short visit from some of my friends (seriously, they were only here for 2 days. They drove 12 hours to get here to hang out for two days only to drive 12 hours back to where they needed to be for a wedding). It had been in the plans for months and months. That was a distraction, but I think one that I really needed. I feel really good right now.
So let’s hope I catch up in May and my follow up at the end of the month goes well. (Yes, more follow up’s post-surgery).
Depending on how long the editors need, Bitter Discord might need to have a shifted release date. If it happens, I’ll let y’all know. This stuff happens sometimes, though I’ve never had to do it before so that’s… I really don’t want to. I’ll do what I can not to have that happen, but it’s on the table right now.
I’ll be back to my temporary hiatus from the public. Oh, and if you see blogs that are password protected, that is because Patreon members have the passwords to those blogs to read them. They’re exclusive.
Have a picture of Carbon, my (female) cardigan welsh corgi in her cute little hoodie.
