Reader cameos this week! We've got Twitter users 12_shannon_12 and ForestAgain34! Unfortunately, because we are nearing the end of the Blackfog Bazaar sequence, we are also nearing the end of our reader cameos, at least for the time being! (There will be crowd shots later on in the story, but the upcoming chapter is a much more intimate story with no crowds.) I was truly touched by how many people wanted to be featured. I wish I could have featured everyone, but please know that if I did not get to your cameo that I saw and appreciated your submission!
I also wanted to thank everyone who wrote messages of support regarding burnout. I'm still in the thick of it, to be honest, but reading your messages is incredibly encouraging, especially during this time of isolation. I finally finished that first draft of the Chapter 11 outline, so I'm taking this weekend to recharge and take a break from work. Also, we're having a nasty heatwave here in California, so it's not like I have the energy to work anyway!
