It took me nine weeks to write “Sometimes It’s Fate” as soon as I finished I started writing the follow up, “Boots on the Ground” I’ve been writing this book for a year and a half and there is finally an end to the long tunnel. Why has it taken me so long to write?
I think it had to do with a lot of things going on in my life. I lost all all important momentum that comes with writing. Just after I finished Sometimes I moved half way across the country, I started working instead of just going to school. I finished School, then I started studying for my big nurse Exam. By the time that was done I found a job and started working again. I didn’t have the time or the focus to really write. I would open something write 10k and move on, or drop 1000 words here 2000 words there. etc. I felt a bit defeated as well I wrote a book, a subbed and subbed and subbed and all I got was rejection notices.
Finally someone picked it up, but my focus was else where. A new book idea came along in January and I spent 8 weeks writing that and another 8 polishing and scrubbing. Now I’ve done a few subs I’ve put it on the shelf for now. I’m back to focusing on Boots. At the moment I have 48 700 words plus another 15k or so ready to drop in once I connect the scenes together. I finally feel like things are moving along. Just need to keep that momentum!
