Where Does the Time Go?

Man, is it tough to find time to write around the holidays!

I’m glad I have this blog, because it keeps me writing even when I really think I don’t have any time to. But I’ve been making time this week, at the crack of dawn before the kids get up, late at night on the weekends, and even during lunch at work (just at lunch, though--model employee here).

Right now I’m working on finishing a short story for an anthology project. I’m excited about it for a couple of reasons. One, because the anthology is being put together by members of the Secret Identity podcast listening community--it’s like a group writing project and it’s great. But I’m also excited because the short story I’m working on is sort of an origin tale for a character from my book Courting the King in Yellow. It’s a cool way for me to dive back into the world of that book, especially since I finally put the book out this past October.

While the story will first appear in the anthology, I am considering putting it out digitally as a free download in the future. I have a few short works that I will either post as free downloads, or collect as a short story anthology sometime in late 2013 or early 2014, after my second book is out.

I did manage to get a couple of blog posts up at co-op critics this week--two more entries in my series about the Dark Souls expansion Artorias of the Abyss. You can read me gushing about how much I love that game here and here.

Have a great weekend!
