Marci Gras was yesterday. I didn’t celebrate appropriately. There wasn’t King’s cake. There weren’t beads. And I had a Reuben casserole instead of gumbo or jambalaya.
So here we are on Ash Wednesday and I’m faced with another Lent.
While many are looking at giving up things. I’ve switched to making a positive change in my life.
Of course, there was this book idea yesterday about destroying civilization on planet Earth, cuz you know it would be fun. And lots of you agreed. Facebook told me so.
The problem is that I have a book queue in my brain that, you know, means I’ll surpass most of my 92 year old relatives if I write them all.
But I have to get cracking to do so.
And, as many of you asked about the last Syn-En book (Home World), I will finish it this month. I will I promise. The issue is that I already wrote it 75K words in November.
But I kinda separated Nell and Bei permanently.
Then I might have, sorta, you know killed one of them off.
Along with a bunch of other characters, cuz it is the last book.
but there are fans who know where I live and have threatened to kill me. Okay, they’re my family. My family threatened to kill me. Horribly.
So I have to rewrite it. Minus the 15K words I trashed.
But alas my brain thinks it’s already finished, so it’s squirrelling frequently with look here’s a cool story idea.
And I’m like, but… but I just blew up the spaceship. And Nell is…
And yet, that new idea is very cool. And diabolical.
Still, I was supposed to have Home World finished last summer. Then Christmas. Then January.
And here it is March. I will finish it by the end of the month as my Lentian offering.
I will persevere and I will triumph. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KrdOcertUzY
Just no one tell the universe my plans.
