Yes. Yes. And Yes.
It has been a long, long time.
Needless to say, I haven't been writing--not creatively anyway.
Most of my writing has been academic as I have been writing (and revising and revising and rewriting) proposals and gearing up to take my qualifying exams at the end of August.
Once I finished edits on Into the Web, the second story in the Double Inkwell series back in January, I've been in academic mode.
But in the back of my mind, I'd been thinking about the new story. The main character has been talking to me, and slowly, I had been making my way to the first page of the story.
Last night, I wrote it, and here it is.
For now, I'll just give the title: INSIDE. More to come as I write more. Hope to do more writing soon as I'd like to have this book done by end of the year and be moving on to the third book in the Double Inkwell series.
