The thirty-fifth chapter of The Gold in the Dark is out! New chapters, complete with brilliant chapter illustrations courtesy of Ally Grosvenor, release every other Sunday at 11 AM EST (and many times earlier)! You can get started on the series with Chapter One right here or on Wattpad.
Not much different these past few weeks, though I did finally get out a new Short Tuesday! It’s not much, but I’m considering it a win. I have another few blog posts planned for this coming week as well. Work-wise our season is finally slowing down again, so I’m hopeful that I’ll have more energy to devote creatively. I’m also going to be working from home until at least July, which I think will also be helpful in terms of creative output? Hard to say, since the wrecking of my normal schedule and routine due to COVID-19 has really hampered writing for me; I know a lot of other authors feel similarly. Even Mark Dawson has been saying that he’s lucky to get in just a few hours a day right now.
In terms of other small victories, I’m also reading more than I have been–I was in a bit of a slump through April, but I’ve finally broken through that and now feel very motivated to read… which is always great for my general creativity as well. I’ve been loving the Beauty and the Beast retellings by Robin McKinley. (She has two.) Just such a pleasure to read fiction by an author who really knows what she’s doing.
Anyway, I’m going to wrap it up here. Have a great (and healthy) rest of your weekend, and enjoy Chapter Thirty-Five. ❤
