The holidays are upon us, dear readers, and this year, just for the novelty of it, I think I’d like to enjoy them. You know, do some shopping…bake ninjabread men…decorate a tree…visit friends and be visited by family. And actually DO these things for a change, instead of be in the vicinity of these things while working on a book. I mean, I’ve got a brother flying in that I haven’t seen in ten years, and in our latest conversation, he laughingly said he wouldn’t recognize me if I wasn’t behind a laptop. Sure, it was a joke…but it was kind of hard to laugh at it.
I know I’ve missed some updates in recent months as I’ve been struggling with this stubborn case of the flu and I feel guilty taking more time off, but to be honest with you all, although I love the books I write and I love the world-building and the story-telling, I don’t have a lot of fond memories of me typing. I DO have fond memories of my family enjoying various holidays. So in the Great Book of Guilt, I have to imagine that missing out on spending time with my family is going to leave a blacker stain than missing a few updates. So with your permission, or if not that, your forgiveness, and if not that, at least your acknowledgement, I would like to suspend updates to Everything Is All Right. Yeah, I know, I left it at kind of a cliff-hanger, but most of the chapters are cliff-hangers from this point on. There’s a lot going on in this book. Five Nights At Springtrap’s is going to be a breeze by comparison.
Did you feel that? It felt like famous last words…
Anyway, no update tonight, nor will there be next week or any week of December, but updates WILL resume before midnight of the first Saturday in January and hopefully be a bit more regular. Thank you all for your continued support and encouragement, and I hope you all enjoy your holiday season.
