Back. Sort of.

I had some kind of notion that I would get plenty of time to post here and on my other (Swedish) blog when I quit Debutantbloggen.
Not so.
I've had as much to do, if not more, since then. I read my f-list once in a while, but not with any predictability. I'm beginning to see a pattern though.

When I have periods of writing and not working in the bookstore I wander the 'net more and distract myself with various sites, this one included. I post on my Swedish blog more often and generally keep a more active presence.
When I'm working in the bookstore I just check my most immediate sites and then get home to the writing. Well, I have a period of writing right now and therefor I've got the time to update here as well.

I'm in the middle of trying to bring about a rough draft of the second book for my publisher. My deadline is the last of February. And boy do I wish this month had as many days as any other month right now. 

I'm having problems with my chronology. Some things must happen before others, but there's already a scene in that place that I need for another storyline and if I move it I'll have to start over somewhere else with that storyline... and so on... It's annoying. And exciting. I wake up in the middle of the night with 'that's not how it's supposed to go'-thoughts, and then spend an hour figuring out how it should go. 

I'm tired and stressed and the feeling of producing with a set expectation of what the result should be like, is distracting and a bit scary. I'll get over it, I'm sure, but right now it's on my mind a lot.
