I was hoping to be able to tell you that I’d finished writing The Mothers, that I was just about to wade into the editing. I’m not. I’m around halfway through. But that’s ok. Because I’ve been getting lots of other things done.
For the first time in more than a year, I’ve written one of my Story Worms posts for Horror Tree. It was good to write it, the guilt of letting the months drag by without posting anything was slowly gnawing away at me. I’m hoping this will be a revival, that I can get back into the habit of writing them regularly again.
Also this month, I’ve written a short story to submit to an anthology. This is where I started out with my publishing journey, and it’s something I’d been wanting to get back into. It’s great to stretch the writing muscles with a prompt, a deadline, and a tight wordcount limit. And after years of being submerged in the world of The Paper Duchess series, it’s really nice to write in a different world for a change. It’s also really nice to be back writing horror again.
And I’ve been blogging lots. This is something I promise myself regularly that I’ll try to do more. And I’ve been working on my business; networking, promoting, and saying yes to a great opportunity that terrifies and excites me all at once.
So I may not have finished The Mothers, but I’ve definitely kept myself busy.
