A New Tack

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.
