Oh! Oh it hurts! I’m preparing to wipe out a few Pages that I wrote because, after reading the first book as a whole, I found a better way to advance this book. I mean…honestly wasn’t entirely happy with what I had produced for a few pages and stopped as a result.
This is progress.
It’s painful and bittersweet, but it’s all for the better! At times I wonder if it isn’t a result of backsliding, but I always find it Is Progress. There were some items I viewed as “bad habits” on my part when I wrote my first book. They aren’t terrible, they certainly did not ruin my book (for me, at least!), but they are things I wish to improve upon. This is also a point where I’m climbing more out of my shell, out of that comfort/safety zone and really gearing up to…well I’d hate to say Flash the world but, you get the drift! It’s a “Surprise Mother-Father’s!” moment, and it feels rather nice. Refreshing, freeing! It’s kinda fun ;)!
What I hope is that people will embark on this journey with both my characters and me, as I have done with authors I enjoyed where I watched them grow in their craft. I have always found that immensely satisfying and inspiring. My dream is to accomplish the same for someone else! Provide the escape and entertainment, with a touch of inspiration. That wouldn’t be too bad, eh?
