The decision is made, possibly encouraged by the dragging-on remains and malaise of a cold. I deleted all my info from the Camp NaNo site and will be buckling down to finish Gift of the Ancien (formerly Gift of Blood). The story I’d planned to hack out in June is one that I’ve been pecking away at for a long time, which is an indication that it has its hooks in me and wants to be written. But not right now. I’ve outlined it up through chapter four, and will keep adding to it. But with two novels and a novella waiting to be finished, I’m not going to take a month off for something new. So that’s it.
I’m also cogitating over the covers of Hidden Boundaries and Crossing Boundaries. I’d like to have an image that unifies all the hand slaves universe stories (even though they’re not going to be a series), and nothing is coming to mind right now. Since the first half of the novella takes place in that universe, and I plan to finish it before the end of the summer, there’s extra pressure to come up with a good idea.
I’m at one of those temporary stopping places where I have to seriously consider all the ideas for things I’d like to be doing, and set some priorities.
