This summer flew by lightening fast. Feels like I only accomplished half the things on my to do list. Even though I did not get my book released yet...I did get other stuff done. I wrote nearly every day. It was bit of a scattered effort. Half of it was on the book I won't use, and the other half was on another book that will never see the light of day. However, they were both not done in vein. I discovered my main character. I learned that a story is more than plot and characters. I learned that the stories I love are filled with problems, and stakes that grow with every page. I learned that if you love your characters you will put them in the biggest trouble you can imagine and let them fix it themselves.
And in between the increased number of hours driving and all the writing I found how I want to change my bedroom.
