This won’t be a long post, instead just a brief check in.
June was a crappy writing month. I’m back on track…in the sense that I’m finally moving forward with revisions and the story, but I’m * kind of * stuck again. I’m struggling just a little bit to find the right tone for this chapter, but I’m just trying to push through it and get words on the page instead of stressing over it.
But June’s been a crap writing month. From being a little stuck on my current chapter, to the end of the month being booked solid, with ALA, a book launch and a family trip, I’ve been utterly exhausted. Like it doesn’t feel like any sleep I’m getting is making me any less tired.
I wish I had better news to report, since I mainly started these Writing Updates as a way to help keep myself accountable. I doubt I’ll get much, if any writing done before Monday, and whatever I do write, will probably be blog posts.
I want to write, I want to get back to my characters and their story, but damn, there are only so many hours in a day. Maybe I’ll try and work on a scene while we’re out tomorrow (6/28). Maybe while the rest of my family is sitting in a bar, watching the Women’s US Soccer Team play France, I can write lol, be antisocial. I’m not going to hold myself to that, but maybe.
It’s late and I’m feeling nice, so here’s a very small section of the prologue of my SF WIP.
The ship wide alarms blared incessantly; their cry of warning reverberated in empty halls. Andromeda was calling out to the vastness of space, a call for help that fell on deaf ears. The halls echoed with the terror of its once upon a time denizens.
A lone red light flashed on a single display in Controls; the only remaining sign of something amiss aboard the Andromeda.

I hope your writing exploits have been better than mine in June have been!
