I’ve spent so much time wrapped up in my imaginary world lately and it’s really hard to switch back and deal with reality. I just want to stay in my imagination 24/7 till I get this book done. It would be nice if I could just hole up in an isolated cabin somewhere for a couple of weeks of uninterrupted writing. Sadly, that’s not an option.
All this straining of my brain to make stuff up has left my blog world a bit neglected and quiet lately. So, I figured a short update was warranted. I’m still writing. After the big snip, my draft has recovered back up to a little over 72K words. My characters are wreaking havoc and plotting evil deeds. Exciting times.
It’s also deadline time. I’ve been kicking myself every time I see the news lately for not having finished this novel a year ago. Since all that self-kicking is exhausting, I have finally decided to force a deadline upon myself. I’m not sure I’ll make it, and if I do, the result will be beyond rough. It’ll still need a lot of work. But, I’m gonna try to find my way to The End for The Compass Code by March 31st.
Hold me to it.
