I know I’ve used the above image before, but it’s so appropriate and handy ^.^
Anyways, to the business at hand!
It has been a loooong time since I have posted – culpa mia, desculpame. I do, however, have some valid reasons – please hear me out!
After returning to California after the my husband’s funeral, I stayed with my family for awhile as they helped me and my two young children work through grief and readjust to our new circumstances.
Once my children and I had been there with my family long enough (trust me there is a time limit to how long anyone can bear living with their mother) I then proceeded to move me and my children two hours away to the wonderful, and hot, capitol of California.
That move, of course, required another period of readjustment as my oldest needed to be placed in the new school system, and my youngest needed to find a daycare.
While my oldest has succeeded in adjusting to her new life very well, my youngest is experiencing some small difficulties (not really small actually) and I’m currently considering homeschooling my youngest to prepare her for kindergarten.
If I do this, this will make any small amount of time I might have had to write nearly non-existent.
So here it is:
First, the bad news: I am struggling to finish the very last section of the last part of the book that will complete The Dragon Throne series, and it will most likely take alot of time. I don’t know how long considering my current situation. After it is completed, it will then have to be vigorously edited. I don’t know how long that will take either, although, if I compare other stories I have written of comparable length, it might take anywhere from an additional 6 months to a year. And that is just the edits. Then there is the preparation for publication – which actually doesn’t take all that long in comparison to actually writing the darn thing.
Second, the good news: I am almost done. I swear I am. I just don’t know how long it will take to write the last part!
So, there you have it!
I want to thank those of you who have been keeping tabs on me and the story – you are my motivation to finish – and finish as quickly as possible. You really don’t know how it touches my heart (both in the warm and fuzzy way, and in the painful guilty way) when I see your messages.
You all have been so patient with me, I beg your patience awhile longer!
Wish me luck.
