Hello and welcome to the hop. So glad you’re here! This week’s challenge comes for the incredible Clair Brett:
How are we all doing on our New Year’s resolutions/goals? What are your tips for sticking to it. When do you decide to scream “Plot Twist” and go in a different direction.
I am very proud to say I am keeping up with my resolution, which was to write more. I am nearly finished with the first draft of Novel #14 (Memories Never Die) and I am having a great time. The characters pulled the plot in a different direction, but I’m okay with that. The villain is far more interesting this new way.
When it comes to being more disciplined and writing more, I hope I never scream “Plot Twist.” Being a writer is a very important part of who I am and I never want to stop. It isn’t always easy and many times it’s a challenge to prioritize, but there is such a feeling of accomplishment when I can write “The End” or “To Be Continued” when it’s a series. And I do love the process. Immersing myself in other places, other times, hanging out with other people is fabulous!
I’m considering several ideas for the next book. I think I have to find a time in history I want to visit and maybe have a ghost or two show up. You never know.
In the meantime, I need to finish this one. Look for it in late March or early April.
Now let’s pop on over to the amazing A.S. Fenichel and hear how she’s doing on her resolutions. And, she has a fabulous new book on pre-order! Check it out!
