Exploding into the next story
I’ve started writing my next book. Two chapters, in fact, even though I hadn’t planned to write any on it until September. After I had my current one edited. After I started querying it.
But some things won’t wait.
Like the character screaming for me to put her down on paper before I forget about her penchant for drawing paper or her hatred of a golf club.
Or before I forget everything I just learned in my online editing course about how to plot out the whole story first so I don’t end up tearing it apart like I did this last one.
Yeah—some things won’t wait.
Like my desire to write something much better than the previous one and throw away some of those stinking rules just for a little bit so I can let my voice go like it wants to!
Some things won’t wait. Will they?
What about you? What won't wait for you?
