Hey everyone!

Ever taken a well-deserved break from something and found it hard to get back into the saddle again?  That’s where I’m at right now!  I’ve written SO many books back to back at this point now that when I finished Living for Adventure, I decided that I was overdue for a little rest from writing.  I finished the edits that needed done and the expansion that also had needed done, then after I sent off the copy that ended up as the nearly done manuscript, I put aside the word processors and took some time to myself to read again and immerse myself fully in the outside world once again.  It’s been a few months now, but I’ve been feeling the draw to the keyboard hard again lately, and so I’ve sorted through my list of story ideas and settled on one.

It’s that time again, though, where I second-guess EVERY part of my process.  “IS this actually a good enough idea?”, “The first paragraph, is that even something I’d want to read past?”, “Ugh, these characters!  Am I going to be able to fully develop them after all?” and all the other assorted what-if type questions are running through my head and making it nearly impossible to get going.  I know I thrive under pressure and deadlines, but I don’t really feel comfortable issuing one for myself this time because my real job has been so intense lately that I’m not sure I could meet it.

Either way, I guess it’s just a great thing to be back at the keyboard and working up the ideas for my latest story.  It’s a bit different from my previous works, as they all seem to be these days, but I think it’s got some real potential.  With any luck, I’ll be done with the first draft by the time NaNoWriMo rolls around — just in time to start another project!

Before I leave you again for my well-loved copy of Word, I want to remind you all that my second book, Living for Adventure, is available on Amazon!  Click here to check it out — it’s only 99¢ USD, so it’s cheaper than most things you’d buy, and I’d love to hear your feedback on it!

Until next time,
