Okay, finally had a spark when I opened up Ch. 21, so I just spent several hours reading back through SOTM ( skimming the sex scenes ) to get myself acquainted with where I was, and wrote the next scene.

 

It's a brief one, but it's forward progress.  :)

 

Caught a one word ( name ) error in a previous chapter.  I had originally given Turner a different name, and apparently didn't notice that I'd actually named him before coming up with the better ( and more appropriate ) name for him.  I'm just going to leave it.  It's a single mention a couple of chapters before the character even becomes truly relevant, and I hate to put in an edit everywhere for something so tiny.  Ditto for naming the prostitute that broke in Matthias in a chapter of SOTM, even though I didn't recall doing so.  It contradicts "Breakin' in the Boy", but I'm going to leave it as well.  If someone calls them out, I'll just have to accept getting caught in a mistake.  LOL

 

That thread I thought I left dangling wasn't dangling as much as I thought.  It is something that needs to be addressed soon in the storyline, but not something that has as much urgency as I believed it did.  I'd mused where that thread was going far in advance, and for some reason, I thought I was farther along in writing that plotline than I actually was.  Where it is right now is fine until it feels natural to pick it up again...  Which actually feels like this chapter, because Ebonar is going to want to get something done while Zoraster is following his obsession. ;)

 

Anyway, I'm back up to speed, and making at least a tiny bit of progress.  We'll see how long it lasts.  I'm in a later-than-usual surge of writing.  With the boy out of school, I didn't have as much time to sleep as I usually did during my end of the year time off.  Took me a lot longer to get caught up.  Unfortunately, I'm back to full time now at the first of the year, so I hope it doesn't cause me to fizzle out.

 

Cross your fingers.

Just so you know, I have been waiting seven years for the SOTM series to finish before I allow myself to start reading it. 

 

I read your Danica series back in 2014 and it is easily my favourite story. Such an epic story arc, rich characters and the scenes kept hitting the mark again and again!

 

I'm familiar with the origin of the Danica story and why it must be quite hard/special for you to pick up, just wanted to let you know that there is at least one person who still follows up on this thread!

About to go to bed, so I'm not going to switch IDs, but thanks so much :)  On vacation next week, so maybe I'll make some more progress.  I've got a bonus week of vacation this year, so an extra seven days of trying to catch up enough on my sleep to write deeper, more involved things.

Just want to inform the writer that I and my friends are waiting for sisters of the mist for a long time. Its been many years since we are waiting for the conclusion of sisters of the mist.

The one thing I can promise is that I'm always working on it.  Even when there aren't words going on paper, I almost always have a few minutes each day where I'm working through how the various threads of the story are going to play out, and refining them.

 

Believe me, I hate that it's languishing unfinished just as much as ( if not more than ) everyone else.  I changed my whole posting philosophy because of that to never post a single word of any story that I haven't already penned "The End" for, with the exception of SOTM itself.
