This week’s post is Chapter 15, Scene 5 (1.15.6).
Exhaustion is hard to write through. Enough naps, care, kindness to self – it passes. Temporarily, but it passes. Liebjabberings must be considered still under construction. Le sigh. The good news is, the more I fail, the more I learn, and the number of possible failures is finite, right?
I keep telling myself I would be writing so well by now, if only I were healthy and mobile – but then I wouldn’t be writing THIS story, and I kind of like it. Forewarning: this scene had parts that were very hard to write.
Some of the exhaustion is due to diving into Wattpad – a very different place to serialize, and a new set of formatting oddities (sorry, WordPress) to navigate and wrestle into submission (though I’m not sure either Wattpad or I would call it a win).
I’m there as @ABEhrhardt, if anyone here Wattpads. Different readers and commenters – and they’ve made me feel welcome.
And here is this week’s quote (thanks, Quozio.com):
I tried a couple of other quote generators, failed, went back to Quozio. There’s only so much learning space in my head.
Additional beta readers welcome – contact me if you’d like to participate (and get to read things earlier). Pride’s Children is a mainstream contemporary novel, suitable for mature adolescents and adults, set in the world of those who entertain the rest of us. It asks questions such as who is allowed to want? And what matters in the long run? And how will fame and fortune break you? And who is foe and who is friend?
Typo reports, etc., extremely welcome! Thanks!
