(or: two things I forget about — updating this blog and paying attention to my public FB page.)
For those of you who are signed up for the Story Subscription, chapter 7 of A Marriage of Land and Sea has been sent out. I’m roughly two chapters ahead of you in the writing, and I can say that it’s looking to be about 12 chapters long, so it should wrap up in December. I hadn’t planned on that — in fact, I thought it was going to be longer — but I am not a long novel writer, I am a short novel writer *insert short jokes here* and 12 chapters looks like it’s going to be just about right. *cue ominous music?*
I still have getting a Patreon account set up, so that I can move away from Paypal, largely so that you have the option of setting up recurring payments rather than having to remember that this is a thing you want to support. Anything that makes life easier is a good thing! Honestly, the setting up of an account intimidates me and conjures up all sorts of “aack, I’m pulling wool over eyes!” as if your enjoyment of my writing is some great scam I’ve tricked you all into. Silly, silly Jo. I’m hoping to tackle that particular project by August. Fingers crossed!
