Yeah, it's been awhile. I haven't called or written. I am going to try to make posts here on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. With the exception of situations where I cannot access the blog for whatever reason (such as last night), I should be able to keep to this.
So, writing. It's been more difficult lately and I believe that would be true even without the distractions I've dealt with these last couple of weeks. Two Fridays back I hit the 10k mark on the novel and it almost felt like a wall. I've made small progress since then but I keep going back and changing things instead of moving forward. In order to prevent a complete burn out I am working in a couple of side projects so we will see if that helps.
I had a story accepted for an online young adult publication. It is a very short piece of a YA fiction about a boy and his ghost. It feels significant to me because it was the first story I completed since I decided to start focusing on writing again. It's nice to find it a home. I'll direct you to that piece when the anthology is published.
Now, I know I promised some information on Rico and Bill but instead I think I'll do you one better. Tomorrow's update will include a section of Rico and Bill interaction from one of the chapters. First draft material, of course, but it should be fun.
