My Demon Episode 9 and Volume 1 Published!
The tenth episode will now encompass just over three days and will probably be quite long.
I have a confession to make. I've been basically writing these episodes the month before for the past few months. When I started publishing My Demon I had a cushion of about four-five months, but as time progressed, I lost that cushion and man, do I miss it. It has felt a bit like a scramble to produce My Demon, but with this being the final episode, I plan to go hard and finish this.
One thing this endeavor has taught me is that I have firm limits and I've pushed myself past them. Trying to produce on a tight schedule is not for me. I need to relax it a lot. I will not have a publishing schedule from now on because I can't determine months in advance when I'll be done with something. I can't work this way. I'm proud of what I've accomplished, but it is not sustainable and I need to fall back and regroup.
One thing that frustrates me though is that I have a ton of stuff waiting to be worked on. I have a rough draft of the next Scary Mary novel and the Ravenswood novella All Debts Come Due waiting in the queue and I just don't have the focus. I feel sapped. When I set out to do My Demon, I did not realize how much energy and time it would take and that was naive of me. At the very least, this has been a hard lesson in limits, but I hope you've enjoyed My Demon and are excited for the final episode. I'm working on it and it will be ready Nov. 1st come Hell or high water.
