Sickness abound, delays will follow.

This has been the year of sicknesses. In the end of January (maybe the beginning of Feb.), when I published volume 2 of A Handyman Can’t Fix The Wasteland, I got sick. And little did I know that I would remain sick for a month. It was very mild overall, but it affected my voice, which meant I couldn’t record the audiobook as I was planning. I had recorded a few chapters, then my voice sounded too different for me to continue. I waited and waited for it to normalize, and alas, it finally did! I recorded two chapters . . . then I got sick again.

Ughh. At least the second time only lasted about a week, but that was yet another week of delays on the audiobook. Of course, my job was also incredibly slow because of bad weather, which meant I had all the time in the world to record, and not the voice to do it.

Now that my voice is normal once more, I recorded another chapter–7 in total. I may need to rerecord the first chapter because I’m not entirely satisfied with the performance, but so far…it looks like I can proceed. I should just avoid all people until it’s finished! But that’s not going to happen. Best to keep up my social life so I stay healthy mentally too. If I’m feeling depressed, you can hear it in my voice, which is just as bad.

On another note, I have about 2 chapters written for book 3, and a general idea of what’s going to happen in the story. I hit a creative slump for a while there, but I may have gotten myself out of it last night. I was having trouble mentally getting the story from one point to another, but I think I’ve bridged that gap.
