It’s weird not being able to talk about successes but I can say this. For the first time since 2016, I have launched the second in a series and that should feel pretty damn good. It went live today, it’s getting decent page counts, and that’s about it. I like the work, don’t get me wrong. There are some late scenes that are pretty good. Not among my best, but as a whole, it’s solid.
But apart from some good days here and there, I’ve felt nothing for my writing lately. That’s not a depression thing. It happens in every job. There are days when you just get through stuff. That’s where I’m at. No ice cream for this one. There hasn’t been ice cream for the last… oh, fifteen releases. I’ve been a busy beaver but I’m past that point of buying myself a cheap bottle of champagne and a tub of ice cream for a book finished. Now it’s a nap, edits, release, and then back to the grindstone.
Someday something will land. Or it won’t, but I’ll have tried.
