I may have mentioned , once or twice, that I am working on the second book of The Veil Series, The Veiled Path to Destiny. I wish I could say it has been easy breezy…but the truth is, it’s been a struggle. More of a mental struggle, I think.
When I worked at my previous job, there would be days when my shift didn’t start until late afternoon. With the child in school, I had day hours to write in peace and quiet with few to no distractions.
My new job doesn’t provide those uninterrupted days hours. Don’t get me wrong. I love my job. I love that what I am doing actually helps to make a difference and contributes to providing better services to those with developmental, intellectual, and physical disabilities. I am over the moon at having the weekends off.
The downside is there is no quiet alone time. I have struggled to find a new and effective writing routine. Hence, the writing of the second book has been slow going at best. Will it be out this year? Absolutely. I WILL find my stride. I just have to remind myself that one word leads to a sentence. A sentence can lead to a paragraph. Add enough of these together and pretty soon you have a book. One word at a time.
Until next week….Happy Reading!
