I’ve many interests, but have decided to focus on one for 2014. Doesn’t mean I will give up or totally ignore the other interests, like eating or sleeping. jk 😀 I mean to say I’m committing to one and only one thing, so far. Writing. I’ve learned that an important developmental activity is reading. I know, pretty obvious. But, I’ve realized I need to make time for reading along with the time I save for writing.
So, I had thought about rejoining my church’s worship band (I’m a bass player), but I need to focus. Worship band takes a bunch of commitment and focus and I really need that time to develop as an author.
As I reported last week, I’m done with the second draft of my first novel. Exciting. While I set it aside for a month before the “final” edits, (I don’t think i’ll ever feel totally done), I’m starting my second novel. I wrote the first 500+ words this morning. Same storyline as the first novel, so a second book in the series. I’ve been thinking about the new story for a few months. It is gelling now. Great start to a new year!
