So I have done all I can with Book 1, Break Away, and I have a few betas that I am waiting on to finish, but they will hopefully finish soon! I was planning on publishing by today, but oh well, I don’t want to rush these last few betas…feedback has been good so far though.
Anyway, I am on to Book 2. I started writing today and I am about half way through chapter 1. I have the book’s skeleton all planned out and that for me is the hard part. I nail down all the major (and some minor) plot details in a big outline and now I just have to flesh out all the details in the middle. This, for me, is the fun part. Setting up, organizing, editing, and marketing are less fun. Now I can just write and write and let me imagination pour out into the story along prescribed lines of thought. If I didn’t have the outline to follow, I would go off in all different directions so it keeps the story on track and me focused on where I want the story to go. I like writing with a lot of detail so the tangents could derail the pace of the book quickly.
Hopefully over the weekend, my betas will power through some more of Book 1 and I can write some more of book 2. We’ll see, I’m anxious to get my stuff out there, hopefully it’s worth the wait!
And the journey continues…
