First, the good points: 1.) Over the weekend I submitted the first five chapters of my next story to my intrepid editor. 2.) My writing time seems to be on the rise again. 3.) I'm finding my writing groove again at the same time.
The bad: 1.) I've realized even before I receive Graybyrd's edits the first five chapters will need more work; the storyline needs expansion in places to align with the premise in the story summary. 2.) I am maybe one-third to one-half of the way to where I would like to be in terms of an available chapter buffer while posting; I don't want to change my posting schedule once announced so I may even try finishing the entire story before I post, though that's still not certain.
There's still no firm date on when I'll start posting again, but it's closer than it's been to this point.
