The struggle is real.
Argh. It’s true. I have one more chapter to write and I’m at a loss.
I started the draft of Book Two earlier this year with great ideas about where I wanted to take my characters. I crafted a detailed outline, which I’ve mostly stuck to. Now I find myself at a loss. My MCs are where they need to be, for sure, but I’m struggling with wrapping their story up for now.
I don’t think it helps that, according to my plan for the Serrulata Saga, I might not write about my MCs much in 2022. I know that sounds strange but I have two side novellas I want to start. Plus, I think I need a break from my MCs. Maybe that’s why I’m wrestling so hard with how to end Book Two.
Are my MCs sick of me? Am I tired of them?
I have a writing session planned tonight. I think I’m going to just start typing and see where we all wind up. It probably won’t be pretty, but at least it will be words on the page. I can always change everything after I do my initial read-through next month.
(That’s one of the great things about being a self-published author, by the way. I make my own rules!)
Fingers crossed I come up with something I like later today!
A Thing I Enjoyed This Week
My hold on A Thousand Ships at my local library became available this week and I devoured the book in two days. Folks who know me well know I’m very interested in Ancient Mediterranean history and myths. This book does not disappoint! Told from a variety of perspectives, this book puts the women and goddesses of the Trojan War in the center of the story. Highly recommend!
