December 6th

First things first: I’m planning to start posting here much more frequently. And I’ve certainly been in that situation where I subscribe to somebody’s blog, and then suddenly I’m getting e-mails every day and I’m thinking, “I didn’t want THAT much of my life to be devoted to this person!” So if you’re a subscriber and the notifications are annoying, you won’t hurt my feelings if you click the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the e-mail.

I’ve been waiting to hear back news on a very cool project I’m not allowed to blab about (hint: movie adaptation) and today I heard back: it was a pass. But that update came with a surprising and exciting piece of news, and the project is still very much alive…though, odds are, I won’t get any further updates until 2020.

I’m only indirectly involved in the project above. There’s another one where I’m writing the screenplay myself. I put a great big dent in it today, but I switched my standard process. I am NOT a “Just get the words down and worry about fixing it later” type of author, but this time, that’s what I’m doing. Looking at how little of the book I’ve covered and how much of the script I’ve written, I know that I’ll have to cut out a lot, but I’ll worry about that later.

My long-term goal is to update every book page on this website with a behind-the-scenes essay. I’m not doing them in any particular order, but today I finished two of them and updated a third.
