East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai

I’ll remember April

Leave a comment

I took a look at the statistics and noticed that not only Karavansara is lagging, but this actually happens every spring.
And I can suggest a reason.
As every spring so far, I’m feeling lethargic and tired, and I’m writing an awful lot.


The lethargic and tired thing is seasonal, and will probably drag for a few weeks more – until, with temperatures hitting +25°C, I will become uncomfortable and tired, and will probably start sleeping by day and working by night.

As for the writing thing, it is true that spring usually sees the start of a number of new projects, and due to a number of causes, looks like this year I spread myself pretty thin…

I am currently working on the following:

The Corsair n°2 – called The Devil Under the Sea, it’s currently just over the 15K words mark, and is steadily sailing towards the 20K and beyond.

The first two Hope & Glory stories, that will see the light in the second half of the year, plus all the million things that must be set straight for Hope & Glory to be the success I hope.

I am revising a horror short called Empty Spaces, and working on the outlines of two more horror shorts for two open calls I just received.

Plus translations, gaming work, some editing for third parties on the side.

Quite a lot of stuff.
Hence, the blog is lagging – but expect some more Challenge posts in the coming days. And more.
I may have little time to write my blog, but when I do it is like taking a vacation.
Vacations are good.
And when this work overload will be over, I’ll probably remember April and I’ll smile.
Or something.
