Okay readers, here’s the deal. If I keep working on one project for too long, I eventually lose interest. Therefore, I like to rotate and keep multiple writing projects going all at the same time. I’m officially putting Aldain on an indefinite pause until I get sick of what I’ve been working on instead of Aldain recently.
There are a couple of reasons for this. First of all, Aldain isn’t really all that interesting to me at the moment. I’m sure I’ll be lured back into his world soon enough, but not right now. Secondly, there are a few things I need to work out in my head about how Aldain’s world works before I can continue on. I like consistency and if I can’t have it in my story, I usually stop writing until I can work out some way for me to achieve that.
That said, I’m going to try and shift gears and work on some more Solomon. I’m going to try and put Solomon on a weekly update schedule (for real this time!) and if I find I can maintain it, I’ll put a listing for it on Pages Unbound.
Meanwhile, I’ve begun a new manuscript for what could eventually be a very novel novel. It’s a little outside the realm of what I normally do, but I think it will be fun. Unfortunately, I’ve decided I’m not going to post any of this one, at least not anytime in the forseeable future. When it’s done the idea is that it’ll get published. Failing that, I’ll post it a chapter at a time. But nothing is going up until it is done, that’s for sure.
That said, if I do hit a particularly tricky section that I want some feedback on, I might post an excerpt or two.
Oh, and I do have a chapter of Aldain written in my notebook, but the aforementioned mental organizing of that story world needs to happen before I can clean it up and post it.
