Works in Progress
My first batch of line edits for The Rule of Mirrors (Vault 2) came a couple days ago, so I back-burnered my new draft of Book 3 to work on them. On my breaks, I’m writing the Q&A for the back matter of the paperback of Book 1, which takes me to thinking about where the series started. So, essentially, I’m mentally in all three books right now, and I like that.
At the same time, I’m hyper-aware that it’s summer, and the season has become inextricably intertwined with my work. On my morning walks, I soak in the warm air and ponder chapter headings. When I lift my head from the computer, I feast my eyes on green trees and reflective water. Even as the late sunsets and grilled burgers and mosquitos suck me into the now, the back of my mind knows I’ll return to my writing soon, and I’ll be pleased to go. I have one foot here, on the coffee table, and another foot in Rosie’s sleep shell.
