This is a good thing, by the way. I'm happy to be this busy. It means that fruit is growing and there will be a pay off down the line - that awesome feeling of accomplishment when you've finished a project. Often that pay off is enough. Hopefully, it'll also mean a financial boost at the end of it. 'Cause, you know, it's good to get paid for your work.
Right, first off the bat, I want to apologise to all the Silver Stag Entertainment subscribers. I had uploaded last week's filler episode (a blooper reel because it was a holiday), but apparently I had uploaded it as private, and then forgot about it. It's been made public now, though. Here it is:
I filmed some yesterday, and it struck me afterwards just how much I adore talking about books and stuff. I really, really love it.
Any way, if you could all do me a favour and head on over to the YouTube channel (HERE) and subscribe? And if you could watch and share and join in the conversation if you're so inclined.
My Welsh lessons are ongoing. And will be for a while. I spend roughly an hour each day on lessons, and it's sometimes tricky and sometimes easy. I'm planning a trip to northern Wales next year for a two week writing retreat and will hopefully get to practice some while I'm there. Here's hoping I actually get to go. We'll see.
I'm still editing Sky Road Walker like a fiend. Alas, there is a lot to go through and, goodness, it's a piece of work. There are a lot of small things to change and some very big things to change and it's the most extensive editing I have ever done.
That said, I'm really enjoying the story. I'll just take the time to thank everyone who voted during the long years this story was written. You all did a good job... even when you didn't!
Daughters of Britain is going much more slowly. I want to have Sky Road Walker done sooner, so it is taking priority at the moment. There are some days when I don't get to writing at all because the morning routine is taking longer than usual, then I will edit Sky Road Walker and leave Daughters of Britain alone. It's quite frustrating, actually, but I have a cover artist waiting for a size measurement for the cover, and I really need to get this editing done.
I also have the audio book versions of my stuff that I'm planning on getting done, but haven't been able to find the time for yet.
Then, in the quieter moments at home, I've started experimenting with chainmaille. Yes, you read that correctly. At the moment, I'm trying to make a dice bag. It's going to be chainmaille and leather, and in my head it looks amazing. So far, I'm roughly halfway done the chainmaille part. I will be visiting a leather supply store after next pay to pick up some tools, stain and leather enough to finish the bag. I'm excited by this project. If it works out well enough, I might start making them to sell at conventions etc. We'll see.
I should also buy some canvas again. I had wanted to paint more this year, and that has fallen by the wayside. I need to pick that up. There are three paintings I need to do for three different gifts that are long overdue.
Right, I need to get on with life. Hope you have a great day!
