Eight months ago, I finished the first draft of Voice of a Silent Fugitive.
A few days after that, I started my own business, and time for my writing was suddenly in very short supply.
I'll admit, there were times when I was tempted to simply let it slip entirely. To set it on the back burner, and begin the editing process 'when I had time'.
However, one thing I'm learning is that we have time for the things we make time for. If you make a commitment to give time to something in a day, then barring any big, day-eating surprises, you're going to make that time.
In this case, I made that time while I was flossing and brushing my teeth. Needless to say, this made the act of editing typos interesting - have you ever tried to type with your hands tied together with dental floss? I've gotten fairly good at it.
And now the editing phase is over. Voice's launch is complete. And I can finally do what I've been itching to do for a while now: start on my next book.
After all these months of editing, it feels so good to be writing again! My current project is somewhat different from My Fugitive and Voice of a Silent Fugitive; it's written in the third person, it's more plot-oriented than character-oriented, and it's my first attempt to write a story in medias res.
But while it's something of a departure from the Silent Fugitive series, it'll still be the same suspenseful, page-turning plunge into the psyches of intriguing characters that you've come to expect from my writing. I look forward to sharing it with you.
