On Violet War

Land of Symphony Avatar

As soon as I reached an interim between The Day JobTM projects, I got sick with a bad case of the flu. I normally don’t get hit like this, but so it goes. Two weeks later… Finally back on the recovery train, then got a migraine. Thanks to some TLC, I’m back to my normal regularly scheduled madness. HOPE THIS STAYS THAT WAY!


I wrote an update on VioletWar.com about why I’ve stopped and started that particular book a million, zillion times. More to the point, I also mention what I plan on doing about it. My long overdue post pretty much boils down to a bad case of project anxiety. (A.K.A. Impostor Syndrome.)

I’m going to be checking in there once a week, but won’t be cross-posting the updates here. When the novel is done and off to beta readers, I’ll give you a heads up.
