This project is particularly small as it stands, so I very well could stay silent and let the month blow over, but that would be dishonest and portray myself as thinking the fewer people who follow my project are unimportant, and that is simply not true. So, I shall address it.
January 22nd was supposed to be my deadline for Chapter 4, but Chapter 4 is not coming out tomorrow. Why? Well, a lot of reasons, but the main one has to do with snow. I live in Virginia, and some of you might have heard that we had some rather gnarly snowstorms as of late. The first one cut my family out of power for approximately two days, though others were not so fortunate to have it back as quickly. There were other complications as well, such as school delays and the transition to my new semester loading me with new work. Work which, due to the lethargy compiled by the extended winter break, I was entirely unmotivated to, at first, tackle.
tl;dr inclement weather, lack of motivation, and general business in other matters has obstructed my ability to work on Chapter 4.
Further, I plan to actually go back and re-review Chapters 1-3 so I can tidy it up, refine the style, and eventually work to get my novella out to a wider audience.
Life can be somewhat intimidating with so much to do at once, but now that I’m finally easing back into the swing of things, hopefully it will be easier to adjust.
Thanks for reading,
One thought on “Update: Month’s Delay”
Hang in there. Life gets in the way of our dreams and desires all too often but if you keep your eyes on the prize you can persevere. Take care regarding those winter storms! I live in southwest Colorado and our winter has been too mild so far. Anyway, just know you’re not alone. I’ve been struggling mightily this past month with writer’s block. January is a rough time for a lot of people. Best of luck! 🙂
