First the fun part.

Now the hard part. Book 13 is being a problem.
I didn't realize it was number thirteen until recently. Maybe that's why it is taking so long. That dreaded number - 13.
I think part of it is new characters that need more introducing. And although it is a world I already introduced, it is a different country and needs a lot of setting.
And this character is a bit odd. I've had him in my head for awhile, but I only figured out his special skill when I started writing the story over the winter. And I have learned a lot about him on the journey. I'm so close to the end, but I just can't see the perfect place to stop.
Another part of it is a bit of fatigue, I think. All last year I pushed myself to write every day. I managed to put out three books. And I was very proud of myself. But I can't seem to stick to that schedule this year. Life, health, relatives, pets...all important things, needed my attention.
So I am giving myself a pass on the year's goals. I had planned to publish this month but I'm still working on the rough draft. It's crazy to push out a badly written book just to reach a self-imposed deadline. It'll come out when it is done and polished and I am proud to put my name on it.
Whew. Now I need to get back to those relatives and cats...
