Finally feeling better. Being sick over the past week really took all the energy out of me. But I’m alive! And it’s time to get back to work on Wayfinder. Between work and depression, I haven’t touched the novel in a little over a month. And I’ve basically gotten lost. I lost that deep connection with Hai.
On the surface, that sounds like a bad thing but maybe it’s not. Where I left her, she had just found herself in a new place with new people and she herself was lost. Well, I guess she kinda still is. And I never really connected to that sense of being out of your element with her. While it was unintentional, I feel it a little more strongly now that I’ve disconnected myself a bit. And I’ve got to backtrack, find my place in the story again. Knowing where you are by knowing where you’ve been. Yes, I know that’s a quote from Moana (which, I’m not gonna lie, inspired the title in part).
So I’m going to take the rest of this week to replant myself in the narrative and think about where we’re going. So in the meantime, I hope you enjoy this song.
