Writing AOM has been a long journey. Somewhere along the way, I’d lost steam because of the ePiracy. I can’t fully say that I’m that driven writer that I was before as ePiracy which continues to plague me and hundreds of other authors. And I would be lying if I didn’t admit it still affects me.
However, I am determined as ever to finish this series. I’ve come too far to not to. So what is taking so long? Many things, but I often wonder if I’m not procrastinating in small ways. As a reader too, I can say that that when things happen in a book with characters you have grown fond of, you often have a somewhat similar response to that event almost as much as a real life event would.
And I think that what happens in this book is making it hard for me to write. So why do it? Why write such events when technically I don’t have to? And it comes down to that is just how the story was meant to go. And I don’t see the story ever ending unless I stay true to it.
Alas, as I trudge along and try to finish this one, I thought I would write a POV. It’s been a while and you all continue to be so patient with me. This POV is told by Mercy. It was just easier to stay in her head seeing that I’m in her head right now. Maybe I’ll write it from the other POV at some point. Maybe. 😉
Thanks for being such loyal readers. It is your kindness, kind words, and encouragement that keep me going. Thanks for that.
And here is the bonus chapter that takes place after BFM.
