So it should be apparent that the posting schedule has just fallen completely into disarray. It’s a combination of a lot of factors: getting a few more hours at work, spending more hours taking care of my daughter over the summer, and heat.
The heat this summer is crushing, and I only have air conditioning in the bedroom, which is not where the computer is. I am coping with it better this year, I think–I’ve been in this house for a few years and am getting the system down for managing the heat without A.C.–but there are still several hours a day that the heat makes it literally hard to think. I can play games, but writing? Not so much.
And the story has gone in directions I hadn’t expected. I had originally
planned envisioned Run, Digger, Run continuing for 52 weeks, a year of daily posts that adds up to one big story. It doesn’t look like I’m going to make that. It may still be one calendar year, given the way I’ve fallen behind, but the story doesn’t have 13 more weeks left in the tank. More like three or four, I’m guessing.
I’m currently deciding on what the next project will be. I’ve got a couple of projects I’m kicking the tires on, seeing if they’ll go the distance. Two things I know for sure: the next project will not post daily, and it will not take place in the Digger-verse. In another month or so, I should have more details.
In the meantime, enjoy the final weeks of Run, Digger, Run! Thanks for your readership and your support.
