When is Pykh 4’s coming?
Expect it near the end of summer. July/August.
Why so far out?
Well, because it’s been slow going, yet my days seem to constantly be filled with new errands and regular life and also a lot of writing. The last two months have felt like I steal writing time instead of making it. My life has been in a bit of upheaval. Nothing tragic. But sometimes you have to put yourself in order before you can come to the desk. Sometimes it’s not as easy as putting on headphones or closing the door.
The good news is that even when I’m taking a week off I pretty much always write two chapters that week. I seem to be incapable of literally taking an entire week off. (Unless I’m done with the project, and then I take about 10 days or so.)
I’ve done my usual rumination, which includes writing scenes that won’t go into the story and changing things around in my head until I like them. Now I think I like them. The last two weeks have probably been the most productive weeks of 2020.
Life has calmed down, my routine is taking shape again, and meanwhile the world is in shambles. Sorry about that. If you are affected by the coronavirus, I hope you’re able to get assistance. I also hope you have some good books to get you through the quarantine.
I’ll be trying to keep the blog regularly updated again with chapters. This is a really sweet book. I really want to share it with you guys, and I think a happy ending for Carter and the gang is long overdue. They’ve fought hard enough.
