I’ve suddenly acquired a social life after nearly two years without one, and it is seriously impacting my writing. 🙂
I’ve lost the knack of writing in little chinks of time–30 minutes here, an hour there–which is how I used to write a lot, even while working a day job.
I don’t have the day job anymore, and haven’t for over five years. I thought I’d turned into a recluse, writing all day, but until the lockdown, I hadn’t realized how much I actually left the house, had visitors, and ran around the city doing things.
Now the lockdown conditions have been very nearly all lifted from my city, our household is abruptly busy once more. Visitors, family, Canada Day celebrations. Heat waves didn’t help, either.
And today, arborists are coming over to our house to rip out three massively overgrown trees which have completely taken over our front yard. There’ll be noise, woodchips, sawdust, and the excitement of seeing the street and neighborhood from our front windows once more.
So much is happening, I’m having to relearn how to write in chunks and mini chunks all over again.
And today, too, Stranger Stars was released on all the retail sites.
A new hope for the Carinad worlds emerges…
Danny Andela and her Carinad allies make a desperate bid to recruit a new ally to their cause, one who could change their fortunes in the war with the Slavers.
