Writing and editing– they’ve been somewhat absent from my life lately. Honestly, they haven’t been a priority. Life has been full of other pressing matters and I’m not one who’s good at being creative when my mind is swarming with large life issues. I wish I was better at that, but there are times when fiction has to take a back seat to real life. I’d hate to sacrifice the quality of my story because I forced the words and/or edited while my mind was a million miles away.
Now that the big decisions have been made (reference my last post), I’m beginning to feel the pull of my characters and they’re demanding I pay them attention. I’ve sporadically been working on The Christmas Key and I’ve been tinkering with a new story– taking notes, jotting down characters, and scenarios– which feels good. I can see the new story growing legs and I think it’ll be my NaNoWriMo project this November.
I’ve had people ask me about the status of The Christmas Key. I’m still shooting for a fall 2016 publish date. As of right now, I don’t see that changing, and I’m dedicated to make it happen. So, stay tuned.
I have a feeling this next week will be full of words and ideas, and I have to say, nothing pleases me more than to feel the need of a pen in my hand.
I’ll keep you posted.
Until next time…
