Week Five (and six) - 'After' Book Three

All right, I'm going to level with you here. I'm not going to write during week six (at least that's what I'm saying now). I am unbelievably busy with a little book called ZA, which has been my entire life for the past six months. You can like ZA on Facebook by the way. And read the first three chapters here. Anyway, in comparison to how huge ZA is in my life right now, After book three just really isn't up there on the scale of important things. Don't get me wrong, I'm not stopping. I just need a week to sort out my exceedingly long to-do list! Okay, back to week five. I wrote almost 11,000 words, which is pretty much the same as last week. Steady is my friend at the moment. I'm sure once I

Say Goodbye to the Old World . . .

It's time to get #ZAReady! I'm so thrilled to announce that ZA will be released on Friday 13th May 2016 by Molten Publishing! I can't wait to share this story with you! If I had to wait any longer I might burst!

Week Four - 'After' Book Three

I got back into the swing of it this week, and my words came faster and better than last week. Thank goodness! The goal I set myself each day for 'After' book three was 2,000 words. I'm now about 5,000 words behind that target. According to my chart, I should reach 62,000 words today, but I'll be happy with 57,000. I would've been closer but I let myself have yesterday off. I think one day off a week isn't too much to ask. Sometimes you have to be strict with yourself. But this isn't one of those times. So I wrote around 11,000 words last week which is nice and steady. It's not my best, (I've been known to write 30,000 words in one week before--I know, mental) but it's steady and that's all

Week Three - 'After' Book Three

So week three wasn't my best. In fact, it's a pretty poor show actually. But give me a break, I took the week off (mostly). I wrote 402 words. Total. I've gone from being 4,500 words ahead of my daily goal to 4,500 words behind my daily goal. I can no longer compare book three to Thereafter and Hereafter as I'd finished them both by this point. And now that I think about it, how crazy is that? That seems super human. How was I ever supposed to keep up with that? Instead of writing, I've been spending time with family and friends and basically just being a normal human being. And I guess we all have to do that every once in a while. But it's all right. I've worked out where the next five or s

Week Two - 'After' Book Three

As expected, week two is much more difficult than week one. I spent much of this week hating every word, wondering why I didn't just throw in the towel and write something else. My other half asked me why I didn't just skip my words for a day. But if I don't do if for one day, what makes me do it the day after that and after that and after that? Next thing I know it'll be three years later and I'll still be no further on. No. Not writing isn't me. In fact, the idea terrifies me. So I battled on, making myself write 2,000 words a day. Let me tell you, that's not easy when you find yourself writing a scene of faff and you know you're 90% likely to cut it in editing. As an inexperienced writer,
