Apologies, dear readers, for the silence around here of late. While I am still, as usual, obsessively following the news every day, I have been reluctant to take time to write about any of it. I’ve been too wrapped up in my fiction world. I’ve set a deadline for finally completing a first draft of my novel, The Compass Code, so I will probably remain pretty quiet here for a bit.
Bear with me, I’ll be back! After all, there’s no shortage of craziness to write about these days.
It’s September again. The kids will be returning to school, and I might be able to return to some level of sanity. (Although I’ve come to accept the fact that that probably won’t happen until I’ve finished my novel.) Intact sanity or not, it’s time to get back to work.
This month marks the 16 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. 16 years of cover-up, war, death and destruction, division, hatred, terror. Since much of the story in my novel revolves around those things, and begins on September 11, 2001, I’m planning to pour all of my time and energy this month into finishing the draft. So, I probably won’t be posting much on this blog for a bit. Not that that is much of a change from the past few months when I posted very little.
Today, I randomly decided to go public with the title of my novel on Twitter. It was a spur of the moment decision as part of a Twitter hashtag game. It only makes sense to reveal it here too…
There you have it. The title is The Compass Code. But the reason why is still top secret. As I get closer to completion, I’ll be posting updates on this Twitter page. Also, I am working on setting up my author website. Like the novel, that’s a slow process, but it can be found at katieaguilera.com.
So, another September. Here we go, and hang in there world.
