I took three days off from writing and editing, but already I feel lazy. I just feel useless when I’m not working on something, I think.
So I just started outlining a new book, and wrote a bit on my new novella. I don’t normally outline, but I’ve done 4 pages on the outline of this novel tonight, and it feels more real now. As someone who’s written two books now (but haven’t published them yet), I don’t think I can fall into that pitfall that is endless outlining that so many would-be writers get trapped in, so maybe I shouldn’t worry about it and just go with it.
I love writing. To me, it’s like a supreme video game where you can do whatever you want. You’re only limited by your imagination. I feel so much better now that I’m back in it. That three day break was refreshing in a way, but stressful also. I feel bright-eyed and bushy tailed now, and ready to race into this next project.
Also, thought I should update you that it looks like I’m going to be working on a movie script. I can’t give any details due to the NDA, but it should be a lot of fun.
Almost forgot- My novella The Vampire Murders is discounted 2/3 to .99 cents today only. Check it out if you have a mind to: The Vampire Murders.
