I’ve always loved writing. And reading. So many words, so little time.
But, up until a couple of years ago, I had always limited my writing to the annual Christmas letter. Occasionally there would be the odd story line that would get formulated, and the first chapter or so written down. But then there was work, and housework, and family, and, and…So these ideas always got put on the back burner. Right now, there are so many of them back there that I’m surprised I don’t burn my mental house down!
The writing started after the nightmare. When all of your senses are involved in something like that, and the thing doesn’t leave for weeks, it’s time to do something about it. So my first book got churned out within a couple of months.
Not so much with the sequel. It had a large, energetic start, but now it is drifting at anchor. I had a large distraction, in the form of having to be with my dad for three weeks while he recuperated from open-heart surgery. There’s no writing for me when I have that kind of responsibility. When I write, I disappear inside the story and often don’t emerge for hours. Not a good thing when someone needs your help.
Now I’m home and, when the jet lag finally goes away, I can write again. Looking forward to it!
I wrote my first book after a dream, too! It wasn’t a nightmare – just a dream. But I HAD to write it out.
