- I've written over 67,000 words of posted fanfic,
- I have over 10,000 words of fic that hasn't been posted,
- I've blurbed over 7000 words for work,
- I have a fifteen-page document I produced with all my notes for A Symphony of Echoes.
I'm a little burned out at the moment.
Over the next 3 months, I have 2 ficathon assignments and my winter_of_wes task to complete. These are things I desperately want to do and not shortchange in any way. I wouldn't have signed up for them if I didn't want to do them.
Next Tuesday, I fly to London for the Halloween convention with James Marsters and David Boreanaz. I am *not* taking my laptop, though I am taking my notebook to write by hand. I return to the US on Monday the 1st (so that I can be in the country to vote), and then that Thursday (the 4th), Craig, the kids and I are leaving for a family vacation throughout California. I *am* taking my laptop then, but it's a vacation, and I don't know how much writing will actually get done.
What I'm trying to say is that until the middle of January, my updates are going to be wonky. I'm going to try to post another Frost chapter before I leave on Tuesday, but after that, I don't know how it's going to go. Echoes has been nagging at me, and nagging at me, and I just can't hold off on that one any more, so when I return from London, I'm going to start posting that one as well. However, with my various deadlines (Nov. 30, Dec. 5, and Jan. 18, respectively), I'm going to be taking the time I need to get those done as well. I'll warn you now; Frost will be the first thing to get put aside while I work on other stuff (if I feel I can't do things concurrently). I hope you don't hate me for this, but it's what I have to do. I just wanted everyone to know.
