I’m currently working on the last edits for Wavesongs 2, Forlorn, which will be out in March. My plan was to finish that and then start writing the third book on November 1, since I’m doing it for NaNoWriMo, but… I wrote the first few pages today. I’ve missed that lovely first draft phase so much (my favourite part of writing), and I had an idea that I wanted to try out and see if it worked.
And it’s so good to be back. Technically I spend most of my free time in this verse because of all the editing, but now I finally get to continue the story. There are so many scenes that I look forward to, that I have looked forward to for a long time, and it’s strange to think that I might be writing them in just a few weeks. NaNoWriMo is brilliant because it forces me to put everything else aside and focus, and I grow more and more motivated when I see how quickly that word count goes up each day.
Not that it will be a piece of cake, though. I know I will struggle just as hard with this book as I have with the previous ones. This time it’s not just about finishing a novel, either, but wrapping up an entire series.
November will be interesting.
