Book 2 - Keep Going
After my first rejection for Book 1 on Friday, I had the fleeting thought of giving up. I think that will happen every time I receive a rejection but the important thing is to get past it and keep going. So that is what I am doing.
Book 2 is coming along nicely. I've written 32% now and I feel like I am truly in the swing of things. It all seemed a bit bland to begin with but I'm getting to know my characters better now. I can always fix the first few chapters in the second draft (I don't edit as I go along but wait until I've finished and then go back as this seems to work for me).
As well as writing Book 2, I have typed up my short story that I'll be posting on Valentine's Day. I felt guilty when I didn't open Book 2 last night so that's a sign that I've connected with it. At times, I'll use any excuse not to write!
