I just posted a comment on The Green Study giving an update on my writing since my new resolve to work on the novel, and I decided to give a little update here as well. I have worked on editing it every day this week. I am now more than halfway through this book. And I have decided to go back and write some sort of outline or chapter summary for each chapter so I can be sure we aren’t sending people to the wrong villages or whatever. I think this will be critical when I go back to work on the second book. I am already 5 chapters into the second book, but I have’t worked on it for a long time. My son hasn’t even read it yet — although we have talked about the direction it will take.
It feels so good to be back really working on writing again. When I am writing regularly, it always feel so good that I wonder how I could ever stop writing. And yet, after a few weeks or months or sometimes years, I always seem to get bogged down and stop writing. I hope I do better this time.
