Update Link: Invisible Strings – Part 13
The really nice thing about winter break is that it’s the only break long enough where I feel like I get to really relax and enjoy myself. The four day breaks are really just trying to catch up on rest and chores left incomplete or rushed. Most of the major tasks around the house are done (the ones I wanted to get to) and I’m trying to slowly prep for next week so that I’m not rushing around on Monday. Hope everyone else is having a good holiday season!
I’m almost ready to dig into FMT Book 2 on January 1, and I’m cautiously excited about it, lol. It’s a different time period than I’ve been working on for most of the year — I started the year with Mad World, set in 2003/04, and between Counting Stars, Signs of Life, and Kismet, I’ve spent most of the year in 1997-2000. Outside some flash fiction working in 2007, it’s almost a relief to fast-forward to 2018, so I don’t have to worry too much about anachronisms, lol.
The next set of chapters in Counting Stars has a pre-9/11 activity that I wonder if younger readers will even notice — someone goes all the way to the gate at the airport to watch take off. (Think of that Friends episode with Chandler, Janice, and Yemen). That’s been gone for twenty years, and it was such a staple of ’90s television and movies! It’ll be nice not to have to watch myself so much.
Hope you guys are enjoying these brief daily updates! See you tomorrow!
