Can I Be Real For A Moment…?

Hi everyone. 

This isn’t something I normally have to talk about on this blog, because it isn’t usually an issue. But I’ve made some promises I haven’t kept regarding the Generation Two rewrites. It’s time I come clean and tell you the real reason I can’t keep to timelines and deadlines I’ve set for myself. 

In the simplest terms, I’m a chronic pain warrior. I have suffered and struggled with Fibromyalgia for 22 of my 52 years. Some days are better than others. This past week has been my worst symptom flare up of the year, maybe of the last two years. These are things I can’t control, and when it flares up, I’m out of commission despite my attempts to remain ‘normal.’ 

This is why I appreciate your patience when I miss deadlines, or when I’m a year behind where I wanted to be with rewrites. When I started my Generation One rewrites last January, I never intended them to last nearly two years. I thought a couple of months, then revisit Generation Two, and I’d be back with Danae and Andy in Generation Five by May of last year. But that didn’t happen. 

It’s important to me to come clean on this stuff, because it impacts the blog progress. It impacts you, and me, too. I am grateful for every bit of grace you’ve all extended by way of your patience, hanging with me when it seems the stories are taking forever. I’m asking you to extend that grace one more time when it comes to Generation Two. It’s coming. It’s long. But it’s awesome. Destiny Farmer has a story to tell, and believe me, she will. Hers is a story of patience, determination, disappointment, heartbreak, love, and triumph. I promise, it’s worth the wait. 

As the great Paul Harvey once said… “And now, you know the rest of the story.” Thank you, for sticking with me, and for understanding. I appreciate it more than you know. As always, I’m open for comments and whatever else you’d like to throw my way. My email box is open. Feedback is always welcomed!

We will see you soon!

Generation Two Rewrites Coming Soon!

Hi everyone! First, I want to thank all of my loyal readers for your support through the craziest two years in a very long time. The blog has grown, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without you! 

As the title of this post suggests, the Generation Two rewrites will be posted beginning September 1, 2021, starting with Destiny’s character bio, and Chapter One if I can finish it to my satisfaction. My schedule for August is pretty ambitious, and though I have written several chapters in a month in the past, it has been a very long time since I’ve accomplished this feat. With or without the finale of Generation One, Destiny’s story will publish on September 1st. It will make a lot more sense, however, if I can finish and publish Generation One in its entirety before then. 

As of this writing, Chapter Eighteen is finished and awaiting the final ‘OK’ from Chris, my brilliant editor and partner-in-crime here at The Farmer Legacy. Chapter Nineteen is well on its way, and Twenty has been in my mind for a long time. Because I’ve dedicated almost two years to the Generation One rewrites, I want need to ensure the ending of their story tugs a few heartstrings and serves them well—no one outruns death, not even Charlie and Fran.

Again, thanks for tuning in! Watch the site for updates. I’m expecting a lot of new content within the month. I’ll be announcing something big before Christmas, so stay tuned for that as well!
