AFWT Chapter Twelve

So I am still attempting to work this upload schedule into my routine. It still hasn’t taken yet, and I keep forgetting to do the pre-posted pages because really, WHERE DID ALL THE TIME GO. She asks after spending six hours scrolling Pinterest yesterday. NOPE NO TIME HERE ONLY EXECUTIVE DISFUNCTION LA LA LA.

ANYWAY. I did scrape together the time to upload Chapter Twelve to AO3 and the official website today, but only because I don’t have to go to work until four. Links for the rest will come…eventually. Maybe. *sigh*

And in case you missed it, I did post Chapter Eleven—at least, I thought I did. Turns out I forgot to hit update so the page I was looking at before I had to leave (for work *sigh*) was the preview page. Oops. It’s up now, and the Table of Contents has even been updated!

*flings self into the void*

AFWT Chapters 8-10

Because I am a magnificent flake, I totally pasted Chapter Nine into a document titled Chapter Eight, and did not realize it until yesterday afternoon! ADHD is so fun. Anyway, I fixed it, and if you were wondering why something seemed to be missing–it was. Oops. Anyway, I fixed it. You can read the actual Chapter Eight now, and since I goofed, I also posted Chapter Ten to make up for it! Yay!

Chapter Eight (the actual one!)

Chapter Nine (in case you want to reread it with context!)

Chapter Ten (In which there is a duel! And a cliffhanger, just FYI)

I apologize again for being a flake. Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria is real and I HAS IT. And believe me, IT SUCKS. But! I have just noticed that I can pre-post pages in WordPress, and I intend to spend Sunday setting up the next few chapters and announcement blog posts to automatically post, so hopefully that will help.

So apparently I’m gonna have to write an asexual cooking romance?

I had plans for today, like cleaning out my closet and finishing Ch12 of my current wip, but then SOMEONE tweeted this:

The tweet she tweeted:

And then I wrote the first page of an asexual cooking romance on Twitter. The fact that I was binge-listening to 80’s rock ballads on Youtube all morning should probably shoulder half the blame. which makes it my fault, obviously

At least it will be a short book? I suspect a subject this close to my heart will make it go fast too.

Announcing Candy Colored Sky: The Official Website of J.M. Cowan

Since I may soon be submitting my first fiction, I thought I’d throw together my official site! I gotta say, WordPress has changed a lot since I did this the last time. I think I spent nearly half the day just trying to find a theme that I could work with.

There were several times during the process where this almost happened.

Anyway! The artwork in the header and the illustration in this post were both done by me! I am currently working on a (very infrequently updated) webcomic about dealing with depression, anxiety and ADD while trying to write a novel (with bonus random journal comics); and I’m revising my second novel, a young adult fantasy about a girl who turns into a giant flaming cat. I identify as aromantic and asexual. Here’s a comic I made about that a few years ago.
