Had a bit of progress with the work, but before I get into that, I just wanted to tell you that I will be doing another panel over at the Fantasy and SciFi Reader’s Lounge on Facebook on Thursday, April 25th at 11am EST talking about Cyborgs and Ethics in my stories. I will also be talking about one of my favorite characters in the Sleepless Flame Universe
This week there is not going to be too much progress as I am trying to recombobulate myself into a regular writing schedule. It has taken me so long to keep the fires under control while maintaining every project I am involved in (but not my sanity, that shit left to the wind decades ago.)
So I’m feeling like toasted ass and my body has basically told me to gfy, so I have been attempting to take it easy for the week. I’m thinking it’s walking pneumonia again, which is only mildly irritating instead of incapacitating. But needless to say, it’s annoying to the fact that I probably shouldn’t be performing my normal routines, including going out in public and exercising.

Welcome to the very first Weekly Summary Report of Sleepless Flame 2.0. Things…are happening. As far as I can tell. My body is currently recovering from the shock of organized scheduling, and I may have taken on too much too soon. What else is new?
In addition to the writing shenanigans, I am attempting another workout regiment while hoping not to feel like death the day after. So far it’s not going well. I took two days off so that I won’t feel like an open can of Surströmming that’s been left out in the sun for a month when I go to HEMA practice over the weekend.
I promise, I promise, I will have actual content shortly, but LOOKIT MY 2LB MASSIVE CYBERCHILD:
She’s a beast at 514 pages. I can’t even right now. I am in a glass case of emotion. My hands are shaking, and I am surprised I can type out a cohesive sentence. Though I am finding myself hitting backspace a lot more than normal. It’s been a real rollercoaster, but now I can say I have seen something to a close.
Welp. There it is. I actually published a deng book. Sleepless Flame is a thing that exists in reality. Despite being a weaver of words, I don’t exactly have a way to explain my thoughts and feelings. Immersive science fiction worlds, specifically cyberpunk, have always been an extremely important part of my life. It has literally kept me alive these years, and I am so happy to finally breathe mine into existence.
I’ve said before, I don’t have much to be proud of in my life, and I find it very difficult to finish projects. I get discouraged easily and give up. But after seven years, I finally saw something to the end. Huh.
This was an arduous week. I honestly didn’t expect to spend so much time on these edits. What was giving me the most difficulty was chapter three, which I have pretty much rewritten ENTIRELY. That being said, it is FINISHED, and I even like where it went, despite the agony it had caused.
