This is the other good news I promised in my last post. Unlike the last couple of years, I've been making steady progress on book four, currently called Arashna. I wouldn’t call it hefty progress, but it’s been steady. I think I’m averaging about a page per week, which is not a great rate, but it’s a good habit to have while there are lots of other things distracting me.
Naturally, some of those things will have to take precedence sometimes. I’m student teaching right now, so that will definitely take precedence, because if I don’t make that a priority, students and their learning will suffer for it. That is obviously most important. Also, I have a massive portfolio project that is going to require a lot of my time and attention and is going to determine whether I get licensed or not. So, there’s that.
But, the short version of my progress so far is that every character except two has been presented, including a few who were in Pasadagavra, but not in Graystone. Zuryzel is there, obviously, and she’s in the middle of a couple of serious struggles - no, Mokimshim wanting her dead is not her only problem.
So, that’s the last of my news. Progress is being made on Arashna! I don’t have anything like a release date for it yet, and if I keep to my half-page-per-week rate, it won’t be for a while. But, never fear! The story will be told! Eventually...
