It has been nearly two weeks since I published “Demon” the second book of the two book series “Rifts”. I have to admit that writing them was both fun and torturous. When the thoughts and words flowed it was a great and euphoric experience. But that was not always the case. Sometimes I had to muddle through the process of writing. I can’t always wait for inspiration.
“Demon” climaxes what “Rifts” started. It begins to show the real evil and those who are meant to oppose it.
I wasn’t sure that I would be able to publish “Demon” before the end of March, but I made it. As I had stated in a blog earlier in the year I plan to make this my year. I had been approaching my writing more like a hobby. But I can’t do that anymore. Time is short.
I’ve published two books this year. They were Rifts and Demon. Combined they were over 120,000 words. I am on my next book tentatively titled “The Awakening”. I am a little over 20,000 words on it. I’m hoping to have it published early next month. I have an outline for the book after that, but one thing at a time.
“The Awakening” is primarily a young adult novel. It is to be a science fiction thriller story with a bit of horror rolled into the mix. I can’t really give any more detail about what I plan because sometimes I don’t stay with my outline. Along the way to the end I often see another route to take that seems more interesting.
If I stay with my plans for the book after that I will just say that involves a church burning that happened years ago, a haunting, and a mystery.
When I write a blog, I try to keep it relevant. Often it will be about writing and books. I also review books that I read.
