If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my brief dip into self-publishing so far, is things often take longer than expected. But Vermin is so close…
Notes on writing.
Every once in a while, I take part in an instaFreebie group promotion. I get together with a group of other authors and we promote each other’s books.
I’m two weeks into 2017 and I thought I’d take a moment to look back on the previous year.
I think if I had another life to live, I’d be a film score composer. Films tell stories, but music does too.
After going through my editor’s changes on Vermin, I settled back into writing the first draft of my third book, David’s Summer. As I may have mentioned before, the story is inspired by my true life events. And that’s partly what makes it so difficult.
As I’ve been working away on my third book, David’s Summer, my editor has been hard at work on Vermin. Well, it’s back, and that’s a good thing.
I’m about to launch into some deep symbolism, or complete cliche. I won’t know until I’m done. It’s all part of the process. Bear with me.
Since I made the transition to writing books almost two years ago, all three so far have been written in third person unlimited point of view. I didn’t want to face the restrictions of writing in first person. Then I experienced an epiphany.
Morgan Spurlock’s RATS is being released to Discover Channel soon, and it couldn’t be better timed.
While my Vermin is with my editor, I was going to work on my cover. Since that would take a week at most, I decided to change the plan and begin my third book. Get the writing ball rolling. Maintain momentum.
