I’m not quite there yet, but no later than July 4th Weekend, I’m going to start writing again on the first novel in this project. It may be before then, but July 4th is the latest.
I plan on doing a lot of reading in the next few weeks in the lead up to writing again. I really want to have a better handle on the mechanics of how to write a novel so it’s at the top of my mind when I get around to doing the hard work of writing scenes.
I still have five other novels to work on, but I just want to finish ONE novel before I turn a certain age very, very soon. Then I’m going to query the novel and see if I can get a literary agent interested. If I can’t I’m going to re-assess things. Either I’m going to just self publish or I’m going to turn my attention to a screenplay or a maybe a sci-fi novel.
But the point is — things are moving fast.
