Almoft Half-way There
The writing of this new work has been so satisfying artistically. Best of all, it has return'd me to H. P. Lovecraft, my ever-Muse. It gives me such happiness to know that I will be able to continue to delve into the Works of HPL & find therein never-ending inspiration. Now that I am at segment XX, I am close to half-way completed with ye writing of this wee chapbook, which I hope will be around 40,000 words. This feels really weird, to be so far along -- I've been kind of hypnotized while working on this thing, & Time has been a thing of naught. My plan was to have the book completed before we head off for MythosCon in January -- but I am so far along & it's only ye 11th of Novembyr! How wonderful it is, to get so lost within one's work that it flows & flows. Of course, it is work, & there have been times when things would not express yemselves; but moftly it has come easily & swiftly. I shall be very surpris'd if I cannot deliver ye polish to my publisher at end of year.
