HALFWAY DONE WITH WORLD EMBER IN TWO DAYS (AND MERRY XMAS, GUYS!)
Hey, Prose Fam. I pray your holiday season has been going great. I know it seems I disappeared off the face of the Earth for a moment, but I'm back now (kinda)
I could hardly participate in NaNoWriMo this year, but I penned a few words just to say I didn't skip a round. Then, there's WorldEmber. I figured I wouldn't be able to do anything, but, surprisingly, I was able to churn out a few articles in like two days thanks to the Christmas story I was working on.
UNFORTUNATELY, I was not able to edit the novel OR complete the audio experience I was trying to make in time for this Christmas, but hopefully, with all this preparation, it will be ready to debut next year.
This story, An Intern for Christmas (working title) is actually a section of the full Secret Agent Someone story that I wanted to isolate and blow up into it's own Christmas special. I had planned this since early in the year, but once I was invited to be on Escape this Podcast (an awesome honor and privilege that I indeed do NOT regret) a lot of my plans kinda got pushed to the back burner. Then, life happened. I got called back to work in the office. I struggled a bit. I got hired for a few big gigs that took precedence (I still need to work on a lot of things! It's a blessing with challenges.) AND even my voice actor, the awesome guy who plays Someone, caught a cold for a moment. :(
He's doing better now, and even if he didn't get sick, I probably wouldn't have been able to finish anything anyway, but... IT'S A LOT. Nevertheless, Merry Christmas, everyone! I know it's Christmas Eve in most places, but for some, it's already the day. OR it will be really soon. So God bless you all and have a wonderful, safe, holiday. I am thankful that, though my plans didn't work out, at least I got to do something. Almost 6,000 words in about 48 hours (in addition to work and everything) is quite a feat if I do say so myself.
Oh. Click the link below for a quick preview of the story! Sorry if you have to wait 365 days for the rest! XD
