I never function well during the summer, but for some reason, this summer has been horrific. The result is, my attention span has narrowed down to two things: work and novel. I just can’t seem to muster the energy or enthusiasm to focus on anything else – hence the lack of blogging. So, I guess this is an FYI that I probably won’t blog again until sometime in September, when my brain has cooled down. In the meantime, the FrankenNovel chugs along at a respectable, if slow, rate. (Note to self: this is the last year I ever work on a large project during the summer.) I’m halfway through, and aiming for a finish date sometime around the end of September. That means early October in Livia-time.
Also, I received my first royalty statement, ever, from Lethe Press for Engines. No, I won’t be quitting my day job and living off my royalties, but I can afford to run my AC a little longer at nights, now. As far as I’m concerned, if that’s the most I get financially out of my writing career, it will be more than enough.
See you in the fall.
