The Best Laid Plans
In this vein, I have been working feverishly (sometimes literally so) on the new project Settlers (title subject to change). Things have been going good there, though that's not to say easy. Complex works never are but I'm enjoying the challenge. When asked if he enjoys writing, George R R Martin replies, "I enjoy having written." hinting that he doesn't like the writing process.
Writing can be a bitch at times...often at times actually, which is weird since it's just putting words on paper but there's the rub. I like the writing process from beginning to end, even when it makes me want to rip my teeth out with pliers and headbutt shards of glass. I suppose I like having written a tad better, though whenever I finish a project it feels like I'm ending a relationship.
But yes, don't expect Shadows of The Past any time soon and know that I'm hard at work on the tentatively-titled Settlers.
In the meantime, "If it looks good, eat it."--Andrew Zimmern
