Hi, loyal readers! As you’ve (probably) seen me mention, I totally fucked up my right shoulder the weekend after Thanksgiving and that’s really had a huge impact on my workflow.
Things are progressing along, but I’m at a weird stage in my recovery. I am no longer in constant excruciating pain. Rather, I have near-constant low-grade pain (like a 2/3 on a scale of 1-10; I’ve done a lot of pain rating lately) and my shoulder tires easily. This means that I occasionally forget that it’s actually still pretty injured and then do stuff like “pour heavy laundry detergent” which had the dual benefit of rotating my fucked up rotator cuff and being heavier than my weak-ass arm can handle. That did not end well.
ANYWAY – I’ve finally started writing again this week (last week was a wash, meaning I really did lose NaNoWriMo this year…sad face) and am getting close to 1K words/day in the mornings before work. (After work, my arm is too tired, since I spend all day at work on the computer as well.)
What does this mean for the release date? At this point, I’m not sure. I’m still hoping to finish it up this month so I can get it released in March 2018 as planned. I’m more than half way done, but it’s slow, slow going right now.
I’m still planning on releasing four books in 2018. (If someone could send me a few sacks of money or a timeturner, which I would definitely sell for money, that’d be great.)
The Broken World (Eleanor #4) in March (fingers crossed) and then the first three books in my Oracle Bay series in October, November, and December.
So really, what’s my point? This is going to happen and I will get through this, make all my deadlines, and make you all (hopefully) very, very happy.
