February saw me derailed again by the shiny. New(old) project, plotting, some writing, realising I can’t get it done by the deadline, shelved.
Then another one that dragged me along by the sheer synergy of great minds plotting. That seems to have petered out a bit due to everyone having to fight on more than one front, and I can’t say I’m all that sorry for now. All those ideas and words are still there, still waiting to be dealt with. They’re not lost; they’ll be picked up in good time.
Meanwhile I’m ruefully returning to Alex and Bengt who I’d lost touch with a bit. It took a few days of (re)plotting and pouring my brains into some plot holes I’d been carrying around from the beginning. A box of crayons and a role of paper later, I’m finally back on track and starting chapter 8.
