I’ve finally finished with all the “plug the holes” writing for Tangled Magic and I’m doing my final read through now. Hopefully, it’ll be off to my reader soon. I thought I was going to need to have someone do a continuity read through for me, but I think I’ve had enough time and space from the story now that I think I’ll be all right doing it myself. If I can read the story quickly. So, I’m pushing myself to get that done. That means getting my words done early and fast, then switching to editing. So far, that’s been easy so far this week, but tomorrow (I’m actually writing this on Tuesday night) I go back to work, so we’ll see what happens.
Right now, since it’s Christmas Day, it’s now time for me to go get dinner started. Have I mentioned lately that I love my Instant Pot? Yeah, because of the Instant Pot, it’s going to take me about an hour to cook everything. That means more time to play games with the boys.
Hope you all had a good holiday. Please stay safe with whatever your plans are for the New Year.
I’m a little behind right now. There was so much to get done and I haven’t gotten to anything. I barely remembered that I was to post the next chapter. Aren’t you glad I popped my head up from the sand for a moment.
Blame it on Cirvel. He’s got me a distracted. He’s out studying a planet with three moons. *grin* Nothing like a walk out under the stars.
Fortunately, I realized that I had a blog to do. I don’t think he’s happy that I fled, but if I’m quick I can get back to him.
Although I have a ton of other things I need to be doing too, like getting to sleep because I’m tired. It’s night on two of the worlds I’ve been on tonight. That’s enough to make any girl tired.
I wonder if it’s now nighttime on the world Moonhunter and Balthier are on. Let’s go find out, shall we?

Adventures this week have been… oh, look, SQUIRREL!
Yeah, something like that.
It feels like two or three things have been going on all at once. Someday I swear I will learn to focus.
It’s just been challenging to get my words in this week, though I have been painting. It seems like that’s what I really want to be doing this week. It’s making me really consider making my word count next year into a rolling word count like I’m doing with my painting. There’s a little part of me that keeps saying, “You’ve already accomplished your word goal for the year. Give yourself a break and paint.”
Then there’s the other part of me that says that I have over 125 days into my writing streak. Do you realize how long that is of getting a certain amount of words in every day? Yeah, 125 days. Just because I have overflow one day doesn’t mean that I can just apply that to the next day. That’s not consistency!
It’s like the fight of the good shoulder angel and the bad shoulder angel. I’m tired of the constant blabbering in my head.
“But you’re doing it with your painting. Why not with your writing?”
Argh!!! Painting is different, don’t you understand that? What if I couldn’t count the words until the novel was completed?
“Maybe you’d finish more if you did that instead of bouncing between projects.”
Oh, I want to talk about this chapter, but I don’t want to spoil it. This is me anxiously clapping my hands together. Ignore the woman behind the curtain.
I was glad to see that I still was a few chapters ahead, so there’s a bit more to go. I’ve been so busy working on Cirvel’s story (and yes, I really think I needed to be writing it before I really got back to Sacred Knight #5) that I haven’t been working on Dragons of Wellsdeep as much lately. There are just so many stories I want to be writing and I’m so far behind with my reviews of what I’ve written that I feel like I’ll never catch up. Even my new processes I’ve been writing about earlier in the year don’t seem to be giving me an advantage. Okay, so maybe follow-thru on some of these has something to do with it, but when you realize that you have to go back and rewrite a section of story, which also means updating the outline, it has just knocked the wind right out of my sails. It’s easier to just keep writing forward. Then I feel bad because I know I need to go back. Time is so limited and the words must be done. Rearranging words doesn’t get new words written. Yeah, I’m going to have to find balance somewhere.
While I’m figuring it out, why don’t you get to the story?
