You may be wondering what I have been up to? There was the carefully thought out plan. Have a small break, work on another project, then begin editing. The only problem with this is less than week after finishing a first draft, I was itching to keep going with the story. Oops!
At the moment it’s all about figuring out how to cram in editing between writing. You see, book number 5 wants to write itself! How did that happen? All stories are different from beginning to end. Whether that’s fast or slow, easy or really annoying.
Why would books in the same series by completely different to write? Each book contains a story that has some heavy lifting to do to enrich the overall plot. All the while characters grow and change. It’s complicated and this time it’s the penultimate story. There’s a serious reveal before the very last book in the serious and I am struggling not to write.
Since things are a little topsy-turvy I thought I would go with the flow and see what eventuates. It may change things around a bit, but that’s half the fun of being a writer.
