I’m writing a new novel and blogging through the process so that you can learn along with me.
For those who want to dive right in, if you’re on the email list, you can head over to the google folder and check out the latest updates to the draft.
If you missed the most recent blog post about dealing with unsupportive loved ones, you can check it out here.
There is no weekly update this week because I’ve started hitting a snag in the storyline, and I’m kind of bored with how it’s going. Even though I’m not posting these updates in chronological order, I do have a rough chronology in my head of how it plays out, and I feel like the characters are making emotional growth leaps without my input or without the input of the plot to help them along. That’s great for them, but it makes the story feel inauthentic to me, so I’ve taken a step back to figure out what they really need to learn and to do next.
While I’m doing that, I thought it would make a post about coping with setbacks, because I’m pretty much an expert on that subject.
