I might be extending this break until after the convention. It might be a bad move to start writing the 5th book and then go off for a weekend where I can’t work on it. Especially since the book starts a chapter or two before a big battle and the death of a major character. Have I said too much or just enough to make you curious?
Yesterday didn’t go as planned. Got back later than expected from parent/teacher meeting and errands. Got caught up with a new interview for Heroic Fantasy, which I suggest everyone who loves fantasy should join. In the end, I got nowhere on my Kindle reading and designed one minor character for ‘Tales of the Slumberlord’. Unfortunately, the character was 75% done anyway.
Truthfully, I have no idea what went wrong. I wasn’t paying as much attention to my reader as I usually do. I will admit there was a lot more noise and tension in the house than usual. Not coming from me and I have no idea what the cause of it was. With three adults in the house all day, I guess tensions flare because each one wants something from the other two. That’s just a guess and it’s entirely uneducated.
Hopefully, I will get a few characters done today and start reading another Kindle book. I still have my thought post to do for the day as well as a read/review/post about a Smashwords short story. That will probably be done later today to give my posts a bit of a spread. Well, wish me luck. I’m hoping to get more than one character done today.
