It was much harder than I expected. My creative brain seems to have run dry and would much rather watch Penny Dreadful on CraveTV than write. But, like a primed pump, things seem to be flowing smoother each time I make myself sit down to the keyboard.
My life disruption has definitely cost me. Normally at this time of year, I would be about halfway through a second or third draft of my manuscript. Right now, I'm still in the early chapters of my second draft. I'm hoping that maybe I'll still be able to make a September deadline but realistically, it may be later than that.
While I'm disappointed about the delay, I'm also accepting the fact that I needed that time to cope with life and get myself physically recovered. As much as I would like to be a superhero and only need a commercial break or end credits to get back to normal, I'm human and I need time.
I'm grateful that my head is finally getting back into the lalassu world and is ready to share stories again.
