I can’t today. I just can’t, and I don’t even know why. People are running amok all over this chapter I’ve been working on since Tuesday, and I keep giving them the evil eye, telling them they need to sit down and behave. Then they smirk at me like an army of little Lokis and say, “We do what we want!”
So, I’m giving them all a time out until tomorrow. It makes me so grumpy because I really just want to finish this story so badly I can almost taste the bittersweet ending (even if it is like 30K away.)
I have come this far, and there is no way in hell I am giving up on this. I think I have to move ahead to the next chapter and write forward for a little while and come back. This means the next few updates on Edgelanders might take a little longer than usual. I know it’s only a first draft, but this chapter I am writing now is such a mess I wouldn’t even let my dog eat it so I could use that as an excuse not to put it up here right now.
Sorry for the vent. I’m going back into my document to try and at least write the first scene of the next chapter. I hope you’re all having better luck as creators today than I am.
