I guess all I can say is that I never intended to take such a long break. That at one point, I had a finished rough draft of what would be the next novel to be posted here. And then I was unhappy with it and my only solution was to re-write the story from scratch. And then my father died March 1 2017 right after this decision was made.
Re-writing for me is a long process considering I do it from scratch. Very little of Fight Song. 1.0 is left in Fight Song 2.1.(I scrapped 2.0 and started with 2.1) So essissially, it’s kind of a brand new novel. It’s the same story. I just took out one POV and added in another. Anyway, couple with writing unhappiness and just general mourning and how difficult it is to muster I say the energy to create, it’s been slow going.
I mean, I am working on Fight Song, it’s just arg, I don’t know when I’m going to get done. I don’t want the Brotherhood Archive to die but I don’t know when I’m going to get done with Fight Song. So much of the 2.1 draft needs revising to tell the story I want to tell. I’ve made actual progess this month and hopefully it’ll pick up and then I can actually have a roughdraft to polish. Who knows when that will be but I’m trying.
Anyway, I just wanted to write this so this place isn’t thought to be abandoned.
