I had wanted to have a definitive ETA for new writing when I gave you this update, but–sadly–I don’t have one. However, so many of you have shown the care to reach out to ask me how I have been that I felt the need to offer a few words–and a heartfelt thanks for your interest in my well-being.
So far, I’ve been able to avoid Covid. And I’m blessed to have a job that I can do from home.
I haven’t had a whole lot of time to write–since converting classes to the online format takes so much time and energy to do. And–to be frank–I’ve experienced a kind of depression in so much isolation. Having a pre-existing condition that makes me more vulnerable to Covid, I’ve definitely not gone out a lot, and when I do, I mask up and try to be as careful as I can.
I hope that you are all well and taking care of yourselves.
Now–here is the news that I do have about my writing. I AM working on The Engine, though it is slow-going. I have through Chapter 45 to Kleannhouse to Beta. I was hoping to have at least 8 chapters stored (or two-months-worth) of chapters before I began to post the story again in order to try to mitigate future delays. I’m hoping that things may calm down a bit at the end of this month, but there always seems to be a lot to do with my work. That said, I imagine that all of you are feeling the stress and strain of your own situations.
I feel blessed in so many ways, despite this trying time. And one of those blessings remains all of you.
All the best to you and your families,
