Sometimes stepping back from deadlines can be just what a person needs!
I decided to take last week off from updating The Star and the Ocean to give myself a bit of time to regroup and get ahead in my writing. I was feeling stressed and pressed for time and I didn’t want those feelings to impact my writing.
Taking that time off turned out to be the best decision I could have made! Not only did I manage to get a couple of new chapters of TSATO in the bag but I also wrote a 1,400 word personal essay that I submitted for Gay YA‘s Bisexuality Awareness Week Series AND started a short Steven Universe fanfiction. WHO AM I?
Oh, and now that I’ve amassed a fairly decent collection of TSATO fan art and commissions, I decided to build a gallery. Check it out!
The Star and the Ocean returns tomorrow with a BIG chapter and marks a personal first for me (who’s nervous? I’m not nervous YOU’RE NERVOUS). I’l also try to squeeze in Part Two of Defiance some time this week as well.
How have you been doing with your reading and/or writing? Let me know in the comments!
