I am proud to say I finished the first draft of Adjudication: Book 13 in the Metatron’s Army series yesterday.
This is the final book in the Metatron’s Army series, a project some 35 years in the works.
I gave myself permission to take the day off, which is really a joke because I work – in one form or another – seven days a week.
And have for decades.
I’ve been writing since I could write. It’s effort but not “work.”
Yes, I get tired, but I love writing. It’s in my soul. It feeds my soul to write. Especially fiction.
Antsy by lunch, I reviewed a number of options for getting back to work, evaluated the amount of passion energy required for each, and after several hours didn’t feel strongly one way or the other.
And I do have time which probably doesn’t help in the motivation department.
Finally, I decided to take a look at Metatron’s Legacy.
After listening to the soundtrack I’d put together several months earlier.
Pulling up my file window I noticed the date for the completed manuscript. April Fool’s Day. LAST YEAR!
Taking a break from writing by – WRITING! I remember when the idea for Metatron’s Legacy took root.
I think I was working on Positional Play: Book 4 in the series.
I was mentally burned out and needed something to take my attention.
Being able to project myself into the future and write something unique with ties to the series that was feeding my soul fit the bill.
I couldn’t help but see the irony in the fact that a year after finishing Metatron’s Legacy, I finished the series that inspired it.
Finished is a relative term. The nature of this story means it will never really end though I am not intending to continue the saga past its used by date.
Repeat. It’s ironic that just as a year ago, working with the manuscript this April will provide a mental break.
Crossroads. I’m at a bit of a writing crossroads but have many options to choose from.
In other words, I’m not worried. I used to worry about stuff like that but not in years. I have faith.
Status Quo. I have a couple of nonfiction projects as well, including two updates from a recent research trip.
I’m also dealing with a phenomenon that – technically – shouldn’t be possible. I knew the physics and knew myself it shouldn’t have happened – ran it by my EE husband who confirmed it shouldn’t be possible – searched the Internet and found that though one other person claims to be worried about it – not that it happened – he is just worried – it isn’t possible. But it happened. To me.
Story of my EMF life.
So, lots going on and lots to come, including a few videos I did but are in post-production.
And the beat goes on…
