Last week my hypergraphia flared up.
As I’ve stated before, I have hypergraphia. This means that every once in a while I have these episodes where I have to write. It’s linked to obsessive compulsive disorder and let me tell you.
There is no option.
When these moods hit me, I often start projects but then as the mania passes the project tapers off and never gets finished.
So last week when I started writing Hera I didn’t tell anyone except those in my immediate life.
Over the course of eight days I wrote about 97k words. Just a couple of hours ago, I finished the first draft.
Because of the mania which fueled this story, I have no idea if it’s any good. I know (from reading articles and the like) that the stories written during the mania of hypergraphia can seem like the best idea during but then once the mood has passed it makes no sense.
I quite hope it is good, and barring that, salvageable.
The first Elders book is written. I think my mania has passed and now I can get back to other work.
