I have to admit that my writing has slowed as my quarentine attitude makes everything more appealing than writing.
Even so, my current book is past 17,000 words. This is just the rough draft. Editing always adds many words.
How is everyone? Okay, I hope. Wear a mask in public to be as safe as possible.
Last Wednesday or Thursday, I discovered a short file of the same new book that I am currently writing. I quickly read it over and discovered the story lines diverged.
I nearly just plain deleted nearly six hundred words. Instead, I put it away and took two days to visit a person similar to one of the characters.
Advice: Don’t delete your work.
After returning home, four hours of smoke in my eyes and throat, I rested. Finally, I read the old file. Deleted on paragraph, and merged the other into the beginning as a preface.
If it doesn’t work, I can still select and delete.
Newest book is progressing slowly while I prepare for fall. I have re-editted the first ten thousand words and passed twelve thousand.
I have introduced two new killers who are of Bill’s age. They have just met.
More later on Stay safe.
Fourth volume of my serial killer series is progressing well. Nearing ten thousand words.
Tentatively changed the title to Family Always. Added two players from the past.
Agent Roberts is retired but just as involved. I don’t like to give things away, but more is being revealed.
That’s all for now.
The Lost Branch v.1 free on ebook starting 8/15 for a couple of days.
Some of you may have developed a less than positive attitude. Get rid of it. Call someone, eat junk, walk the dog.
Then, get on with life. For me that is catching up on everything I shoved aside to finish a book.
The sixth book in my sci-fi series is up and I have moved on.
I am now working on my website, research for new historical fiction series and writing book four of my serial killer series
People love the large print. Since I now call the shots, only the first few books are normal print.
Be safe, wear a mask.
Cheesey, but it helps me start. Bring the living characters back with an update on them. So far, Isaac is back. Michael and James. Tory has not shown up yet, but he will be next. Or Retired Agent Roberts.
Yes, I am still researching, but not an hour a day. More is revealing itself, I think it would go faster if I could visit living relatives…..
Sixth book of my sci-fi series just went on line. Taisyd Revisited… available ebook and paperback.
Moving on.. researching new historical fiction. There is so much it is overwhelming me.
Solution…one hour research and development..then I will begin a fourth book in my serial killer series. My brain is mandating this.
I took a break from my nearly complete novella. It is book six in my sci-fi series.
Currently I am re editing and working on a cover photo.
I am researching for a new historical novel and will resume this task when my sci-fi book goes live.
I just figured out why I am a slow writer. I am trying to write something no one else ever did…..impossible
