After a ton of background noise and getting knocked off of my hot streak half a dozen times, I have finally gone through and fully edited the first half of the sixth draft of Failure to Adapt. I’ve had a lot of helpful suggestions along the way, so finally getting in and implementing the changes in just the right spots to strengthen the overall narrative has, for the moment, got my confidence in this thing at an all-time high.
Sasi has one more day of her fertility treatments, then we go in on the 5th for me to do my part. After that, she goes back in another two days, and then we wait another twelve to see if she is pregnant.
Here’s to hoping!
So once we get through all the stuff on Monday, I can begin committing myself to longer stretches of writing. If I am able to have blocks of sustained writing, I can definitely have this thing done by the end of November. I don’t need life to go perfectly, but I do need things to chill out. We’ve had to deal with a ton of shit from immigration, and while I’d rather not talk about any of it (just because I don’t want to get mad all over again), I will say that the worst of it is behind us.
That’s all for now. I know I haven’t done much of anything else lately, but shit has been so crazy and I have found myself needing to just relax on the few days where nothing is going on. Looking forward to a productive November, followed by an even better December than last year.
I’m gonna go play FF12 now. If you beat the game, you can start again with your characters at level 90. Now I’m gonna go in and get all the cool shit I didn’t have the patience to get the first time around.
Just in case any of you were wondering…
