I finished my book The Month of April in less than a month. It helped that I had came up with the project a few years ago and had written a short rough draft. In the process the story did change some from my original concept, for the better.
As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, from the moment you settle in and begin writing the story began leading in directions I hadn’t seen coming, but that’s the exciting part of writing.
But I must keep moving. Even if this story is complete I have to now market it. Which has its own challenges and time consuming for sure. So it is a matter of keeping yourself motivated and on schedule because even if I have no boss, telling me to do so. So I’m not sleeping well.
But each day I wake up I’m right back at it. Whether it’s writing my blog, promoting, or preparing what project I will work on next.
So, that’s where I am, no victory dance, no champagne, just back at it, because I must keep moving.
I have a few projects in mind. I also have a novel that is partially finished with 250 pages.
But I really want to work on something new because the novel I’ve sort of bored with it. I still like the story but have since fallen out of love with it.
So the work never ends. I may even revamp my first book Forever Striking a Crucified Pose because I made a lot of rookie mistakesin the rush to publish it.
Then I might even work on the screenplay for my newest book.
But I will attempt to sleep tonight and tomorrow, I’ll be right back at it.
Much love and respect…Chad
