Writing within the fog #writerslife


I hope you're all safe and well. 2020 has been a crazy ride so far, and it's not over yet. The image of the pier reaching toward the fog is how I feel. I don't know what lies ahead of us. Some days, I can't even tell where the water is and where the fog begins. It all blurs together. I'm just taking one day at a time.

Now that my homeschooling days are done for the summer, I had hoped to watch and read a lot more. I've not been doing either. My island is getting a lot of attention on Animal Crossing, though. Barovia will rise again!

My presence online has also stumbled and gotten lost in the mist. I need to find my way back and establish a regular schedule again. Slowly but surely I'll get there.

One thing that has picked up is my writing groove. I'm actually working on two projects, and they're coming along marvelously.

Project #1 - Heirs of Blood and Feathers. First book of a post-apocalyptic paranormal romance trilogy co-written with a good friend of mine, Pixie Stormcrow. I'll be publishing it under my pen name, Morena Silver. We're moving along so well, we might go with an August 1st release date! More news next month on it.

Project #2 - Ravage of Revenants (Book #1 in the Khthonia trilogy). I might keep that name for the second book in the series and name the first book <Something> of Specters. A Shudder of Specters? I'll figure it out. This is my LitRPG novel, and I'm nearing 65,000 words. I'm so excited I'm nearly at the end! This book has been so much fun to write. It appeals to both the gamer geek and the fantasy lover in me. It's a little grim dark and has a light touch of romance.

Please leave me a little message and let me know how you're doing. And be kind not only to others, but to yourself as well.

  1. Foggy is a good way to describe it. Glad you are writing through it all though.

    1. Thank you, Natalie. I need to do that. School is still on schedule to start at the beginning of August, so I'm aiming for then.

  7. Yep, it's foggy in my world too. I was working on my WIP quite well, until I needed some expert advice before I continue - it could impact the plot, so I can't work around it.

    Well done on your two new projects!

  8. Hi Christine - I feel for you ... it's a troubling time ... and finding focus is challenging ... I'm going (very) slowly forward and wondering about so much - not much I can do ... so I'll keep being sensible and making sure things do get done and I help others where I can. Take care of you and the family - and yes great you're being positive about your writing and your projects - all the best - Hilary

    1. Thanks so much, Hilary. Still going slow here. I dare not look too far ahead, but trying to stand solidly where we are.

  9. I've been in that fog a long time, it seems to me. And while there's a comfort in the mist, a more balanced, blended life is a healthier way to live, isn't it? Kudos to you, you keep on keeping-on. I've always admired your drive (however you may feel about it, I'm seriously impressed by how you press on--even if you don't always feel it's full-steam-ahead, it's inspiring nonetheless). :-)
