Happy New Year One and All :)
Welcome to 2018 I thought this would be an ideal time to let you know how my WIP is going. I’ll be really honest December was more like a work in stagnation.
I’m sure that I wasn't alone in finding myself with an unusually high amount of social and personal commitments on the run up to Christmas. In addition my husband and I were trying to get our decorating finished before Christmas Day. All in all by the time I went to bed on Christmas Eve at 3.45am I was exhausted.
I took the decision to take the rest of the month off and recharge which is what I absolutely needed. And in doing so it helped get the creative juices flowing again.
Now it's 2018 and I'm back to my day job and my writing restarts in earnest. During my break I had a fantastic idea for a new book/series and I am really excited to write it. In fact I seriously considered giving up on my current WIP and doing this instead. Because, well it’s hard.
This has always been a challenging project even from its very inception. There’s been lots of times I’ve felt like giving up or putting it on the back burner. And recently I was wondering why I’ve persevered, the only answer I keep coming back to is that I feel the pull of the story and that might sound weird or a bit airy fairy but it’s all I’ve got.
I’m hoping that by the time I type The End I can look back and think I’m glad I kept going, it was worth it. Maybe I won’t have to wait that long. Maybe by the next WIP update blog I’ll have positive news.
Until then this is very much to be continued...
