Happy Wednesday, Aledan Merfolk! I’ve obviously already started my blogging hiatus for the holidays, seeing as how this is the first (and only) post in December, but I did have a couple of awesome things to update you on.
First: my dad moves home from the hospital today! He’s been living on the other side of the state since September for a bone marrow transplant, and he was declared cancer-free last week and cleared to move back home on Monday when they took his catheter out. Tomorrow I’m heading to Michigan for basically the rest of the year to see him and celebrate Christmas at home 🙂
Second: I’ve been doing Nephele Tempest’s December Writing Challenge and I’m happy to say I’ve finished the first part of The Fair Man (previously called The Good Man). I’ve written every day in December, even if most of what I’ve written so far is dialogue. I seriously have pages and pages of dialogue with barely any tags. But that’s ok, because this is a first draft, and first drafts can be disembodied heads floating in ether talking circles around each other. Second drafts are for things like adding bodies and setting and action. Right now I’m enjoying the banter 🙂
I hope you’re enjoying your December, Aledans. Stay warm and enjoy the season however you do *coughsStarWarscoughs*
