New Chapter Up!

Updates are coming

New chapter for The Price of Living today! It is called In Discord and Rhyme! I meant to finish it in my spare time today, then get it all edited and posted on FF.net and Teaspoon, but insomnia hit like a freighter loaded with adverbs and sentence fragments, and I just couldn’t…. resist.…… them.

I still haven’t done any uploading to Teaspoon because typing out any HTML5 code right now feels like the most evil of all evils to ever evilly evil in evilness…

… pretty much, it’s a little after 6AM and I haven’t been to sleep yet…  remembering to include my slashes and end my brackets just wont happen, and this probably means my bad habits and writing-crutch addictions abound, so… yeah. I’ll be looking it over again after a short nap, probably doing this:

And it also means that nearly everything is riotously funny, especially things which aren’t:

So, instead of bothering with whofic.com (or sleep, whatever), I’ll be watching an episode of Futurama and having a cup of coffee before my sons get up and I have to make breakfast. At least I know I’ll sleep well tonight!

… maybe…

I worked on this a little earlier in the week! I’ve been seriously considering breaking The Price of Living into two separate works in the same series. It’s… getting long, and I have a fair amount of story ahead… I’m just not sure what I want to do, so I did the Hypotheticals Mambo, listed pros and cons, thought of a title I could live with, and worked on this:

The Amber of the Moment

Not that I’m any closer to making a decision, I’m not. For now, I’m going with where I was always going, but even my man Georgie went from the planned trilogy with A Song of Ice and Fire to “however damn long it takes,” in the middle of writing, right?

Yeah. I’m no George Martin, and I really do need to make a choice.

It’ll come.

I hope you all are enjoying a glorious weekend, and I hope the week to come is full of treasures in the form of family, friends, health, and the little things to light you up inside!

I do believe I will finish this story!

Updates are comingFeeling like I can conquer! I’ve added another chapter to The Price of Living! It is called Tango Through Time and it was almost over 13,000 words before I cut it in half for not-killing-my-readers reasons.

My friends and family were, thankfully, very understanding of my absence while I spent all my free time tapping away at the keys. It is catharsis when I need it most, and this summer hasn’t been the easiest.

This does mean chapter 26 is nearly finished as well, which is fantastic since I lost steam (nearly gave up) and wasn’t sure I could recover. The end was written ages ago, so I’m almost finished!

Got some time in to do a bit of artwork too, which is always brilliant since work-artwork is the opposite of fun and brilliant. It’s eeeevil. It’s anti-fun and mindless, soul-sucking monotony. I often try to sneak in a Tardis here and there, like a hidden Mickey, only less hidden and more front and center, but my conscience never lets me keep it in. Damn copyrights. Anyway, nothing big, just a picture to go with the chapter, but it was fun:

I am very pleased to be updating again, to say the least! I owe it all to your encouragement!! Thank you!!

If you are reading my silly, timey-wimey bit of madness, I sincerely hope you enjoy it! If not, I sincerely hope you enjoy your week!

…Not that you shouldn’t enjoy your week if you are reading it…

…So… everyone, enjoy your week!

Right, shutting it.

Finally!!! Took me long enough!

Updates are coming

I am very happy to say after months of just opening the document and then looking at cat memes for hours, I have finally disciplined myself and updated my Whofic, The Price of Living! IMG_2610

The new chapter, The Black Archive, is up and available for all to read and I’m well into the next chapter with an excitement I haven’t had since I first began writing it.

Seriously, I know exactly what my issue was, and it came down to a lack of confidence that I could properly tell the story. I got mired. So I avoided and ignored it, letting what once brought me much joy become something over which I felt guilt and anxiety. I am very happy to say that I’m mostly over it.

I really do owe this new chapter and my reawakened internal fire to the support and encouragement I’ve gotten from you wonderful people out there who read Dead and the Descendant and left me such beautiful and amazing words of encouragement.

I know it isn’t an SVM/TB story and that many of you aren’t followers of the Doctor Who fandom, but the support has been so instrumental to reconnecting to the belief in myself. Thank you. I know I say it all the time, but the truth is, I can’t say it enough. It has meant everything.

So this one goes out to you, you beautiful people! I’m in your debt as an author and I don’t know how I would’ve gotten here without you! You are the best!!

I really am beating out a samba!
