My writing came to a halt recently when I had a health scare and then I started back to work. So, that basically means that I haven’t written any fiction lately. I’m barely keeping up with my blog, but here I am writing another post. One thing I can say, though, is that the worst is behind me. I’m fine and ready to get back on track.

I’ll be implementing my fall writing schedule starting next Monday. I try not to do any writing or blogging on Sunday and I try to limit my social media interaction. Come Monday, though, I’ll start with 30 minutes a day and work my way to 90 (by the end of the week). It may not sound like a lot, but that’s pretty much all the writing I get in when I’m not on holiday or vacation. It’s increases a bit in the Spring because more daylight invigorates me, but this Winter, I may revert back to 30 minutes. I guess we’ll see how things go.

Next month, I hope to have a more hearty update for you, similar to the last one I posted.

Well, that’s all I have for now. Got some cool stuff happening on my side panel you might want to check out, aaand… If you’re up for it, please check out my Reading Challenge Update.

#WIP Update 21 #amwriting

WIPU

So, writing is a tricky thing (in case you didn’t know). I’ve done quite a bit of writing as of late, but I haven’t made a whole lot of progress on any one story. (How is this possible you ask?)

Well, in the process of picking up stories I hadn’t worked on in ages, I found that my original vision for many of them has changed. This month, though, I just want to focus on my progress with the Saying Series 2 book. At the moment, the working title is “Be Careful What You Wish For.”

Since I’m bringing back all the characters from the first book but choosing to focus on one in particular, I had to figure out how to put my new (well, new to this installment) heroin at the center of the action or drama. Needless to say, there’s going to be loads of relationship issues and not all of them will be Lisa’s fault (she’s matured since book 1).

So here’s the basics of what I’m working with. Lisa and Teddy are working to keep a spark in their relationship as they both continue to excel in their careers, which kinda pulls them away from each other. Between Lisa and Rebecca, someone has to get pregnant soon so Sarah Rapture can have a grandchild. Paul, Alex, and a few new comers are back on the dating scene and it’s a little scary (some of Lisa’s life lessons will come in handy here). And while I’m sure some will be put off by this, there will be race issues addressed (in case you didn’t know, Lisa is black… dunt, dunt, dunnnnnn! 😮 )

Well, that’s all I have for now. I’ll explain about some of the other stories I’m rewriting and or structuring another day. If you’re up for it, please check out my Reading Challenge Update.
