NaNo is over, and I (barely) made it to 50k in the end. I missed too many days but caught up in the last week by making lots of insane deals then locking myself away from the family. I didn’t finish the story I was working on, but it’s a long one, so I didn’t expect to.
I stalled out on it yesterday and assumed it was because I got cocky after a 7k day on the 29th, but as it turns out, my brain was merely busy trying to find a way to screw me over. *Sigh* I had a change of plans idea last night that will require a full rewrite. Part of me is like, please, no, but mostly, I’m just happy to be feeling creative. I think the changes will make the book a lot stronger. I’m feeling so good about this story right now that I want to keep working on it in December. I badly need to squeeze in some editing though.
I think people who enjoyed Chaos will probably like Spare Heir, but I haven’t deserted Ava. I’m still working on what has to happen in her next book – there’s a lot to squeeze in. (Speaking of Chaos and Ava, the 99c sale on the first bundles will end after this weekend). I have neglected Harbinger though because I’m waiting to get all three edited close together for consecutive releases, and I can’t do that any time soon. Next projected release is still another short, Secret Self, which will be free to newsletter subscribers as soon as its ready.
I’ll be back before the end of the month with another update – if I survive December. 🙂
