It seems that When All’s Said and Done simply refuses to be written. I’ve hit a particularly sticky situation near the very beginning of the piece that I just can’t seem to plow through–but perhaps a weekend off from the store will help me press onward.
Of course, the schedule is also getting shuffled around, thanks to a decision I came to regarding The Last Colony. Instead of straight ebook release, I’m releasing it as a serial, one chapter a week, at www.embklitzke.com/e557 — the first two posts went up on January 1. It will update Sundays and is the first book of the Legacies of the Lost Earth series. I’ll probably release the ebook version before the full serial is posted (thanks again to A.M. Harte for that suggestion).
Looking forward to my forthcoming weekend off from the store, which will leave me time and flexibility to write. I see a trip to Starbucks for a few hours on Thursday in my future.
Awakenings Book 1 was completed on January 1 with the Epilogue post. Book 2 began today, 2 January 2012. I’m starting to claw my way back on-schedule with that (which is to say that I’m no longer scrambling to write a post within forty-eight hours of it needing to be posted). Hopefully I’ll be able to maintain that pace.
Keep your fingers crossed for me.
