My Dear Future Readers:
I am always writing and you know how hard writing can be for a person. I mean, I can write books but during my school years and college, I could never write essays or big papers. It scared me. But now, I feel like I am finally writing as much as I want but more importantly, I am writing what I want. That is the most important thing in my life.
As I mentioned earlier, I have been doing a lot of writing in the recent days. That is what I want to talk about in this blog post.
BIG NEWS!! UPDATES On PROGRESS!!!
During a sizeable amount of time, I have been working on Book 2: Sacrificed Love in my Power of Love Series. It’s taken me a very long time to write because it had a lot of emotional parts in it. At times, I had to stop writing because I would get too emotional. But, you know that I write romance and in writing romance I know that my books have to have a happy ending.
To be honest, writing the ending to this book was really hard. It was hard to find a suitable ending because of the events that took place in the book. I was not sure if I could even end the book at first. But……I could not leave the book unfinished either. So, I finally, sat down at my computer and reread my chapter. I started to think to myself about what I could write to finish the book.
Finally, I came up with a good enough ending for Book 2: Sacrificed Love. Of course, I left it open to be able to start Book 3.
You know, I feel FREE after finally finishing Book 2. I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I feel like all the things that were weighing me down finally lifted and flew away. Do authors really feel that way when they finish a book? I don’t know but when I put the finishing period in Book 1: Forbidden Love, I cried.
What am I going to do now? I thought then. But this time on February 10, I thought, I feel great! I feel relieved. Time to start Book 3, FINALLY! I made it to Book 3. Those thoughts surprised me but I am glad that at least I did not cry.
I know that Book 3 will continue my story and I’m glad that I decided to write a series instead of just one book. Of course it is hard to start but you know, I will find a way. I have come to know my main characters so well that I believe that Book 3 will be a fun writing experience after I finish Chapter One. The first chapter, I realize now is the hardest to write. Maybe it is hard just like writing an essay but except you need to reintroduce the characters in a new way so the reader can see the main characters from a new side. That is exactly what I am trying to do with Book 3 right now.
To be honest, writing beginnings was always hard for me even in school and I think I need some time to think of a good beginning. But don’t worry, I always keep writing. I am happy that I can keep doing it. I promise, I will make Book 3 with lots of ideas and brand new plot twists just I did when I was writing my first book. It just takes time to write a novel and that I have a lot of now.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.
