I've Finished A Story!
I finished writing a story today. It's always a wonderful feeling when that happens. I have missed that feeling because I haven't "written" anything since the middle of July. That's a long time to not have been writing anything new!
Anyway, I've been writing this book since August 6th. While it might seem impressive to some people that I finished an entire book in two months, I did want to say that the book is only 28,000 words. So, it's not overly impressive. That being said, it still makes me happy.
I haven't updated much of my writing timeline post, but I will post an update in the next few weeks. I've been hard at work, editing, writing, and trying to choose cover designers. I recently read a book that has helped me figure out where I want to take this platform and career. So some big changes will be coming - hopefully soon!
That being said, I struggled to finish this book. I basically pantsed the whole thing. That's so new to me! I am usually a big planner. I like planning and details and figuring things out so I can keep track of where I'm at in the story. This story started out following the outline loosely, but it went completely off rails almost immediately. It's not anything like I thought it would be.
Also, the series that I'm going to be publishing soon is on its last round of needing edits. I am struggling to keep my focus on this series and the series I want to write next because the romance genre has captured me. It has taken me hostage. I swear, I've tried to save my focus, but it's having too good of a time with the romance books.
In all seriousness, I've had romance idea after idea hit me over the last week or so and I want to write them all! I also have been reading all the romance books I can get my hands on. I am attempting to stay focused on my urban fantasy series and the series after that, but I'm so tempted to ditch it all and go to romance. Someone come slap me, please.
That's all the updates I have for you today. I will be sending out a newsletter with a few more specific updates. I can't give too many details away just yet on this blog. So, if you want some more details, make sure you're signed up for my newsletter.
Have a bright and colorful day! Keep writing.
