It’s been a while since I last posted an update. Mostly I just got burned out and needed to take a little break to recharge the ol’ batteries. In this case, that break involved burying myself in the game Witcher 3 for god knows how many hours now. My god that’s a long game. The amount of content and side quests in it are just insane, and it does get quite addictive.
I also got a new bass. I got one of the new Fender Elite American Jazz basses, and I fell instantly in love with it, so I’ve been spending a lot of time playing bass lately too.
On the bright side, I’m basically caught up with everything at this point, so I have absolutely nothing hanging over my head at the moment. I’m finally able to relax and enjoy life instead of feeling like every new thing that comes in is just something else on my back that I can’t get out from under. That’s been my life for months and months now, and I’m finally able to breathe again.
As for Cindy’s Story, I’m almost done with chapter 8 right now. I have less than a thousand words to go in it I think, so it’s about half done. I’m going to get back to working on it today, and then when I finish I’m going to really just edit the hell out of it with a fine toothed comb, because this is not only going to be the first book I make available in paperback as well as digital, but it’s also one that I’m going to attempt to farm out to agents. I didn’t have much luck getting an agent with my series, due in part I assume because of the sheer size of it, so I’m hoping that farming out a stand alone will get me better results and help me to get a foot in the door. We’ll see what happens. If not, it’s no big loss. I’ll still be self publishing in any case.
That’s about it for now. Cindy’s story has turned out better than I ever could have hoped for so far, and I’m really looking forward to getting it out there. There’s a lot of humor in this one, as well as one of the most hilariously irritating characters I’ve ever written. I just introduced her in chapter 8 and I really went over the top with that scene. I’ll try to pop in to post more updates here and there as things progress.
