Oh gosh, anyone who has had the unfortunate chance to listen to me lately it seems like I’m putting out a never ending sequence of fires. Or trying to keep my world from completely exploding. I’m not sure which yet.
Which means writing has gotten sidelined. However, thankfully I had enough in place that Conjured Defense is still on course for release.
Doesn’t mean I’m not nervous about it leaving the nest and going out into the world. Despite what my beta readers tell me. At least my cover is pretty.
IWSG Question of the Day: What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?
I’m not sure I have a particular instance where I learned that. The more I read, the more clearly I was transported to other worlds where I could leave the troubles of life behind. I could be whoever I wanted, go on adventures with amazing people, take on various challenges and villains… The good stuff.
And you would think I would apply this concept to my own writing, but eh, I just make stuff up.
Part of that is likely because in my calls for help, I was ignored. I’d write down my requests so there was no misunderstanding, but I remained unheard.
Yet, I continued reading and writing, escaping to somewhere else.
