Bookmaking log: finished all of secret project I can finish at this time; not much left now
• • •
Jesus fucking Christ. Three all-nighters in a row, noted reader. I went into last night planning on either finishing it all in one go or quitting early and finishing today. Well, I finished today, but I didn’t go to bed early. Lol. I’m exhausted but it’s done, it’s done, steps 1-11 are 100% done and step 12 is on the cusp. All I need to do is finish finalizing Convenient Incidents, which I’m going to start tomorrow because, as I said, I am goddamn exhausted.
Won’t be long now, noted reader. The secret project is almost done. I’m almost ready to get back to work on OTR. Yes, you better fucking believe that’s still coming out. The novel itself is 70,000ish goddamn words, and then the story anthology I hid in the back is another… actually, I don’t know the exact numbers, but the goddamn book is more than 100,000 words long and it’s fully written and IT’S COMING THE FUCK OUT, OKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY?!?!?!?!?!?
Soon. Soon enough, anyway. After the secret project is done I’ll finish step 1 of editing OTR, then I’m going to finalize Flowers, then step 2 of OTR, then I’ll finalize Under the Hood–
BY THE WAY, I JUST FOUND OUT TODAY, BUT SOMEONE BOUGHT AN uNDER THE hOOD EbOOK THREE DAYS AGO! aaahhhhhhhh!!!! OUT OF GODDAMN NOWHERE! I don’t know who did it or if they’ll read this, but thanks a ton! It made my day when I saw that, sincerely, and I had a great day before seeing it too. Got rid of the last of my petty resale shit, I finished everything doable for the secret project, I took a barefoot cloudy eyed stroll through the forest singing Joe Hawley music at the top of my lungs, and then I find out I sold a book. Jesus fucking CHRIST what a great day!
Since you’re thWAIT. After I’ve finalized Under the Hood I’m going to take OTR through step 3 of editing, and then there will be a delay. I’m warning you now, I’m not going to publish Over the River the literal moment it’s ready to be published. There will be a chronological delay, and it will be for a good reason. I’ll talk about it more at the time… or maybe as I move forever forward with my shit I’ll become increasingly more cryptic and you’ll never really know what I’m working on at any given time. Who am I to say?
Since you’re there, noted reader, thank you for being there. From this day on, we move forever forward~
