So this past weekend, I turned invisible on purpose. In both real life, and on the Internet (though, if I’m completely honest, I did sneak on a few times, look at some stuff, answer a few emails, and the like. But mostly ignored it). My goal was to hide away and focus my brain, and write a lot of freaking words.
I’m happy to say that it was quite a success!
In two days, I managed a little over 11,000 words. Well, I actually did a great deal more than that, but there was a lot of deleting happening on day two, and I don’t really count those words because they didn’t stay. And I did struggle to get into the groove on day two that I had on day one, which is when most of those words happened. But I still managed a huge chunk of writing.
I have, in fact, half a book written. And that, right there, was what I wanted to emerge from my weekend sequester with. I have half the book done, and still six weeks to finish the other half. (the deadline was Admiral suggested and author approved. I need boundaries sometimes, even ones I impose myself, or I’ll just procrastinate forever)
So the sequel to Something Like Hope, which is out at the end of the month, is half written. And when I finish that? Well, then I’ll be diving right into the third book. Just so I can keep the momentum going on the series, and no one has to wait too long to read the next installment.
Because I know I hate it when I have to wait as a reader. I don’t want to do that to you guys!
All in all, it was a really good weekend, capped off by the release yesterday. I really do love those guys, and I hope that if you’re so inclined to read Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love, you’ll love them a little bit too.
