I’ve been so focused on rewriting, revising, and editing my book Félicité Found that I’ve forgotten how much fun the creation process of writing can be.
Last week, I started working on my next project. Yippee! I’ve only written a few chapters, but I’m already in love with the story. I adore typing word after word to craft my idea into an intangible reality. Writing is liberating. Fun. And to finally bring my story and characters to life is entertaining. I find myself giggling occasionally or wanting to cry. And a pretty big plot hole I couldn’t figure out how to fill during outlining was solved right as I was lettering out a scene. Inspiration comes at the most random moments. I love it.
One thing that I’m happy about my second book is that I have so many more tools under my belt that I didn't have with my first book. I have a greater understanding of many of the crucial aspects of writing. I feel more confident this time around. And I hope that it won’t take as long to write.
I love writing!
While I’m querying, it’s a great way to distract myself from the long and sometimes agonizing process.
How is writing going for you? I hope very well.
