We will become Summer’s ghost
“We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer’s wreckage. We will welcome summer’s ghost.” — Henry Rollins
My favorite time of year is looming. Traditionally it has been my most productive.
I have resolved to finish tweaking First Born by the end of Labor Day, September 5th, and send it off to my editor Scott Sandridge. Once his edits come back to me, I aim to wrap it up in three days time and get it back in Seventh Star Press’ hands. I’ve no idea when it will be released, but I’ll be sure to let you know.
As of now, I believe I’ll be handling the art chores. I have a wealth of images already created for it, so I’m hoping to see this thing come alive in the coming month.
Hopefully I will finish tweaking Descendant for re-release before my surgery on the 16th.
That will free me up to really throw myself into the project that Connor and I have had our heads wrapped around now for a couple of months. The plan right now is for me to begin writing the rules for Occult Detective: The Roleplaying Game come mid-September.
I’ve a lot to squeeze into Summer’s End: playtests and ultrasounds and ghost hunts and surgeries and board meetings and roleplaying sessions and writing and editing, cursing and screaming… and our 16th Wedding Anniversary on the 22nd.
If I get through all that I hope to get down to some serious yarnspinning. I want to write six short stories through the end of September and all of October, but if OD:RPG is really singing I’ll be happy with one…
I’ve been waiting for the Witching Season to return for months on end. We’re so close now, it hurts… but I can smell it, far off in the distance.
I’ve a feeling this will be one for the ages.
