I'll keep this update brief for your sake (and my sanity).
I've been working on and off on a post-apocalyptic story still. Think Walking Dead sort of vibe. Not a "good" story, but it's something simple and fun for me to write, because at the end of the day, that's what writing is supposed to be, right? Fun?
Also working on starting a new poetry collection. Because why not.
I've been swept up in that new-job fatigue, so I've been really lacking the motivational to work on things outside of that. Still trying to adjust to the new routine after all that messy time off from COVID.
That said, I've been super behind on writing in general, especially for blog posts. Oops. I'm sure I'll be able to find a better balance, but I guess right now it's that I just don't have any motivation for hobbies and whatnot. Just kind of existing for a minute.
On the prose side, I'm not actually 100% on which book to push out first. I might do Little Midnight since it's a standalone work (and that comes with a little poetry book to do as a companion piece as well). The Ones Who Went and Liminal Spaces are both set in the same universe, so I've been thinking about dropping those subsequently which means I have to be editing them both at the same time so I can make sure I smooth out the wrinkles.
On the poetry side, circles vol 1. should be ready soon. I've gotten back into working on that project and I think it's getting quite close. I mean, I could keep picking at it forever trying to replace every word with the perfect word, but if I did that all the time, I'd never be finished anything.
It's kind of funny… when I started these update posts, I really thought I'd be able to have more stuff to talk about and say, but it's a lot of the same month to month. I'll try to spice it up in the future. Maybe some knock-knock jokes? Anyway…
Word Goal: 10,000 words.

Have a good wander, friend.
