Thank you to everyone who is participating in the Challenge. As you know we are only one month into this. But I wanted to give you an update on my own progress.
When I started on March 1st I had a short story in mind, Oblivion’s Kiss. I had already created a cover (that’s how I encourage myself) and a rough idea. Now, thanks to the challenge, it is available to read on Amazon. But I didn’t stop there.
I have a project that I have been working on, the sequel to the Mage Destinies. I had a lot written, but these last few weeks, I have been writing and rewriting, erasing and revising. As of right now, I have 28 thousand words. I have a feeling this one may be longer than the original.
So, right now I am writing a death scene. (Spoiler Alert) Here it comes. If you don’t want to know skip this paragraph. Tom’s mother succumbs to her cancer. This is a difficult passage for me because my Dad is not in the best of health right now.
So, keep on writing. If you are locked indoors, this is a good time to write. If you are a healthcare worker, you may not have time to write, but if you want to record some quick thoughts, try using Google Docs. You can access your files from your home computer, your phone, your tablet.
I chose March through May because it is the most difficult time to write to encourage other writers not to give up. I had no idea exactly how difficult it would be.
Don’t give up. Keep the faith. Hang in there. And Scribe On.
