Starting late, but not ending early

Volume 13

Been having a bit of writer’s angst lately. I only just recently finished polishing up the first chapter of Mill Avenue Vexations Vol 13. And it’s been something of a bear. I think maybe that I’ve fallen into a rut like Cory Doctorow tweeted about earlier this week—I am beginning to really hate my current writing projects, which suggests that I’m almost done with them

Vexations Vol 13 is only 3 volumes away from the end; and I really need to start thinking about how I need to resolve and otherwise bring things to a head. It’s slow going but … I think that I can do it.

I am aiming for 36k words in less than the next two months so we’ll see how well I do.

Just my general run-of-the-mill update.

I slung that chapter off to one of my beta readers and I’ll get to work on the next one tomorrow. At this rate—assuming I cannot up the rate—I’ll have this volume polished up by Friday. I won’t start really editing the hell out of it until I’m done with Volume 16. Which, well, may take me a bit longer than the end of this month.

And then the artwork commissions start.

So much work, so little time to do it in.

Project Wonderful

So I registered for advertisements on Project Wonderful on Black Hat Magick. I know that I don’t have thirty (30) posts quite yet, but I’ll have twenty-three (23) tomorrow, and as the weeks go by, thirty will appear. Hopefully they don’t hold this against me and see that I’ve been a pretty good publisher and advertiser insofar and keep that in mind.

I could use the extra tiny amount of trickle money to help pay for the hosting.
