Let me warn you. Do not try this with your writing, unless you are prepared and see no other way. Well, first of all, if you see no other way, you haven’t thought enough about the problem. I have. I am experimenting with something.
Industry experts (i.e. successful authors) warn newbies (i.e. unpublished writers or newly-published authors) not to do this.
But I’m going to give it a shot.
Wish me luck.
I have realized lately that I spend an awful lot of time editing. Editing and not writing more new material. This is not good. Especially when I have so many stories to tell.
Here’s my experiment: I will be writing new material in the mornings, when I typically work best, and during the way (at the day job) I will be editing. Right now, I am several chapters into the new novel, so I’m not editing the pages I just wrote. One day soon I hope to be.
That’s what the experts say not to do.
But I’m going to do it. I’ll make a good run at it. I’ll keep you in the loop as to how it’s working.
I am currently around the 14,000 word mark of the new novel, book two of the Central Division Series. I also concluded an e-mail interview with a gentleman who has a website/blog where he features other authors. My interview will be up soon, and I’ll share the link with everyone when it goes live.
