Welcome to THE CHECK-IN, where you can get a sneak peek into my writing progress every week! Read on to find out what I’m working on and how things are progressing in my world.
Here’s the breakdown:
- Dirty Drinks – I can’t tell you how good it felt to sit down and start writing on this anthology novella again. I have high hopes for how this piece is going to turn out. Writing it has been so much fun and therapeutic in it’s own way. It’s hard to explain, but getting to stretch my writing muscles and write in a genre I don’t usually dabble in as been very freeing!
- Lonely is the Night – I’ve made some limited preliminary progress with the third book in The Night series, but am having a little difficulty finding one of the main character’s voices. Which is unusual for me, frankly. Still, going to keep plugging away at it and hope for a break through.
- Fickle Fae – The Untitled PNR is untitled no more — and also not a paranormal romance! I realized that I’ve actually got the beginnings of a fantasy romance on my hand, and I’m just as shocked as anyone. I really want to get back to this one, so hopefully I’ll be able to do a few hundred words on this soon.
I took a long break from writing, partially because I needed to step away and rest, and partially because I lost sight of why I was writing. But I’m back and pleased to find that I’m in good form, still able to do at least a thousand words a day. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep my momentum up and get some projects finished!
LESSON OF THE WEEK: TAKE BREAKS WHEN YOU NEED THEM — BUT DON’T BE AFRAID TO START AGAIN.
