Update Link: Ricochet, Chapter 25
Happy Monday! I’m super excited for this week — I have a three day weekend coming up, and on Friday, it’s a short in-service day. Plus, I just got my hair chopped and I’m so happy to have all that length off. I’ve been keeping it long through the pandemic because it was just easier to get it trimmed. I chopped six inches, so yay for summer hair!
I’m also excited because somehow I managed to avoid rewriting my entire program for the last cycle. I thought I was going to be able to do it, but I was worried I’d crack over the weekend, LOL. I didn’t. This is awesome — this means all my prep is done. All my teaching materials are set. I can really relax and go with the flow for the last fifteen days of school. I’m even bringing my personal laptop to school to write on my lunch break.
In other news, I set a date for Flash Fiction to return as well as a tentative schedule. I plotted out the end of Signs of Life. That will be returning on Wednesday, June 16, my first day of summer. That will be posted twice a week – Wednesdays & Sundays at 11 AM (I’ll start my timer at 10 AM).
The second story is Scars, the final story in the Collect Your Regrets universe. It’s the story that Tania asked me to write a year ago. She wanted me to rewrite Tom Baker’s return, but for me to set it in 2016, I had to decide if I was going to ignore the Jason stuff or how I was going to handle it. I settled for reunited Liason in Part 1, then bringing Jake back in Part 2. Now we’re going to do the Baker rewrite to finish off the series. That will be posted on Tuesdays & Fridays, also at 11 AM. The morning Flash Fiction really fit my writing energy the last few months, so we’re going to see how that works this summer. I wrote in the morning last summer as well, so I’m optimistic.
Other minor housekeeping: I updated the Alternate History page because I hadn’t updated Mad World listing or added the link for Fool Me Twice. I also updated the side bar for June’s projects and schedule and the Recent Updates page.
