I spent most of the month of May working hard towards a deadline. When I’m in that frame of mind, everything else gets pushed into the background. The house goes uncleaned, chores go undone, and I disappear from the radar of all my friends and family. It’s self-imposed isolation, and I suppose it’s good for the story. When that deadline passes and the story is put to rest, though, it’s time to re-enter the real world. It feels a bit strange to be excited about paying bills and weeding the flower garden, but that’s where I am right now. I have so many things I want to do that don’t involve sitting in front of a keyboard. This down time is important for recharging batteries and getting the creativity brewing again.
However this, too, shall pass. Soon, the urge to write will return and I’ll be moving back into the planning stages for my next project. I will tell you that I already know what my next project will be, but I wouldn’t actually consider it new. It’s more of an old project that I’ll be picking up again.
Yes, for all of you who’ve asked, I’m going back to the Dream Wreakers.
