First off – No, I haven’t abandoned this story (never!) or gotten writer’s block or anything like that. I simply am *swamped* with work at the moment – and it’s only getting worse.
To avoid going into too much detail about real life – I am half of a team of two that launched a new international publication last December and since then I’ve been up to my eyeballs in meetings. The reception has been amazing and everything is going extremely well – but I do have to keep spreading the word (PR, distribution, future collaboration, you name it I oversee it.) I’m averaging about four hours of sleep (maybe?) and something like 6 meetings a day give or take – which means that when I finally come home all I want to do is not look at a computer/phone anymore.
Back to Endless Night. Half of chapter 11 is done, and I know how the entire chapter needs to flow. I just simply need to find a day (my previous weekends were sadly eaten up with more meetings – this world doesn’t believe in the concept of ‘holidays’) where I can focus.
I’m extremely grateful (and apologetic) to everyone who has been so patient, and I promise you I will complete this story – I’ve honestly invested too much time and energy not to let it play out to the end.
Right now it’s looking like I will try to have Chapter 11 out by the end of the month – I am going to try to work on it this weekend (forget weekdays for the moment) and will keep posting updates on my chatbox about my progress.
Again, many, many thanks to everyone for being so supportive!
