I’ve been absentee for, what? Almost three months? … Yikes!
I want to say that I’m not going away. I’ve had chronic pain and fatigue for the past two years. The pain is in my entire torso and can get so bad, it’s hard to breathe. I had a bad bout for over a month not long after I finished ch 19. Even when I wasn’t in pain, I was so exhausted, I couldn’t write. On top of that, I’ve had chronic migraines for years. So bleh…
I just needed to get away from everything for awhile. I’m one of those types who will up and disappear on everyone then pop up again a little later. I get the urge and I follow; otherwise, I go crazy with this feeling of overwhelming pressure. I take some time to myself then I’m at peace again.
Oh. On the good news side of the coin, I also got a new job! It’s at a learning center that I worked at 8 years ago. That’s been keeping me busy, too.
Well, enough about me. What you really want to know is the status of the story. What’s happened to Corbin and what the hell is Matteo doing?!
Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a little longer for those answers as I don’t see myself posting the next chapter until late June-early July I’m not saying it can’t be before then (because it can). I kinda suck at pantsing, lol. At least, I don’t think a thriller should be shown to the world before it’s finished– which is what I attempted. There’s so much you want to go back and change and improve, but I can’t go back. In light of my frustration, I’m going to go ahead and finish writing Memory Games before posting the next chapter. This will give me the chance to ensure that the whole story connects. Sigh, there are some characters and plot pieces that were supposed to be in the story already, but aren’t and now I’m figuring out how to use what’s already in it to get to the conclusion without things seeming like they came out of nowhere. I’ve got ideas that I think will work, but I need to make sure they do. Finishing the story is the best way to be certain. That’s why I need a month, for the writing. I can get a lot more done if I’m not worried about taking pictures at the same time. Also, I’m a trillion years behind everyone’s blogs! :P Not saying I’m going to catch up on anyone’s, but I am going to read a few chapters of everyone I’m following. And I like to comment so you’ll probably be hearing from me on your blogs :)
