However, today you just get a nice GIF instead of a real post.
Also, a reminder: If you are a fan of The Princess Bride at all (movie or novel), you should listen to As You Wish by Cary Elwes on Audible. He narrates his memoir on the filming of this iconic cult classic with guest readings by many of the cast and crew. It is a delight to the ears.
The tale has inspired my writing and encouraged my continued honing of the craft.
First, the bad news: Rue From Ruin – Part 4 cannot be published today. It is SO close, but I can’t give it to you like this. It needs… maybe one more day? Maybe two?
The good news: during revisions I’ve added over 400 words that are absolutely essential to the story. This will be the longest part of Rue From Ruin yet, clocking in at almost triple the length of Part 1.
Part 4 is one of the most difficult things I’ve ever written. There is so much happening. My critiques by beta readers have been so helpful and I can’t wait to share it with you all. At the same time, I don’t dare publish it without a solid review of all the new words.
I hope you can forgive me. I’d hate to have three people angry with me forever.
UPDATE (The excellent news): Rue From Ruin – Part 4 is now available to read!
