The creative writing process can change so quickly. Four months ago, I thought that I was ready to publish my second novel, Followed, but after some very helpful beta readers, I realized that it wasn’t ready at all. I made so many changes from then until early December and then got wary of the whole thing. So, Followed has gone from almost published to sitting in my file folder.
I just need a break from it all. The underlying premise is good, but I need some more distance to figure out what I really want to do with it.
On the bright side? My third novel, Frozen, was also nearly completed around the time that I was editing Followed, so that is my “next big thing”. It is a novella, but my passion and drive for this story is immense, even from the beginning. More on it later! 🙂
I hope all of you have a wonderful new year! Here’s to many inspirations and completed stories!
