I realized, suddenly, that the weekend was upon me and it was time to start putting together the next episode of "Sarah". I realized, suddenly, that not only am I not prepared for "Sarah", I am also not prepared for "One Knight's Story". I realized, suddenly, that sudden realizations are really distracting, upsetting and somewhat offputting. But anyway, I have a lot of mental conditioning to do to get myself back into the serializations of the two stories we've been working on. Keep in mind that I had started off in completely different directions using a completely different paradigm and now I have to re-train my head to get back into 600-1000 word episodes that keep the flow of the story moving forward. And interesting. And, perhaps, a bit suspenseful. And exciting.
I guess I'm going to need another week to actually completely get my groove back, so for those of you who came here in the faint hope you'd be reading the next episode of "Sarah", I'm sorry, but I gotta make ya wait one more week.
And as for Gwalchmei and Alfred and Habeeb, they'll have to wait another week as well. My intention, if you haven't guessed, is to do Sarah on Saturdays and Gwalchmei on Sundays until both stories are complete. Sarah will more likely be done first, only because we're deeper into her story - closer to the end than not. The thing is that during this time we haven't been publishing I HAVE completed almost all the research I need to do to keep Gwalchmei honest.
Don't hate me, 'k?
