Week 29 – Missing My Queue
I wanted to have the first episode of the newly-dubbed Silent InvenTOYry Semi-Shorts done tonight, but I hit a technical snag and lost my groove to work on it. Bleh. That’s the closest to being done of all the things on my to-do list, so barring any more difficulties it should be up tomorrow at the earliest. I’m going to need some help to film a few scenes for the next full SI episode, but as soon as I can get hold of a few extra hands I can get back to work on that.
Next up in the writing queue is Chapter 27 of Shattered Skies, which I estimate is about 40% done.
So it looks like I won’t have the revision of Soulsnatcher done by the end of July after all. I had a feeling that would be the case, but barring any sudden bursts of inspiration and/or motivation, I think the best I can hope for is getting Chapter 5 out this month. Part of the blame for this rests on me, of course… despite my efforts to get on a regular writing schedule, I had too many days where I just don’t feel it. Not helping matters is that my petsitting business has exploded this summer. I’ve known for the last few years that May, June, and July are usually my busiest months, but this year in particular I’ve had job after job after job stack up, with barely a week going by without somebody in the neighborhood going out of town. Work has to take precedence over writing, and given how easily fatigued I am… again, bleh. I’d love to be like my Tumblr friend Sid, who can hold down college courses and a job and has still managed to update their Overwatch fanfic every week like clockwork for over a year now… but that just isn’t how I’m wired. By the way, said fanfic is in its last few chapters, so I’m activating Shameless Plug Mode™ and encouraging all my readers to go check it out and give Sid the praise they so richly deserve. If there’s one thing to look forward to now that summer is winding down into its usual hot, muggy, and generally intolerable period, it’s that I know the finale of BMHBYH will be spectacular.
