I have been supremely slack with blogging of late, as you can all see, but there has been a good reason for it. I’ve been writing my ass off and now the first draft is done and off to the editor! Which is fantastic!! For the first time since beginning this trilogy I got to write ‘The End’. And now I feel a little at a loss. I intend to read heaps as I wait for the response from my editor, so I’ll have a variety of writing styles and words in my head before I begin re-writing. So I’m working at that while also tentatively working at plots for other books. A couple of series that have been at the back of my mind for a while as well as a stand alone novel. It is really weird how bereft I feel at the thought of ending the trilogy, but at least some ideas give way to follow up books, which would be lots of fun.
I just can’t shake this need to write! I thought by the end of the Trilogy I’d never want to approach it again. I only ever intended to write 1 novel (not 3) and then never intended to publish it and now look where I am *lol*. It’s really fantastic to meet the new fans of the books on the Trilogy’s facebook page and I do post on there much more frequently than here – it’s easier and makes me feel less guilty (‘why write a blog post when you can work on a story..’ ;p).
That’s the update for the moment, I’m still quite scramble brained after finishing the draft so if you do want to catch-up or chat, I recommend ‘liking’ the facebook page, it’s such an easy way to keep in touch!
