A little while ago, I was unsure about the wisdom of starting on the next book when this one isn’t finished yet.
(It’s getting there, I promise)
Well, now I’m also writing two books ahead. This is a Good Thing, I have decided, because:
a) I’ve never done that before, it should be interesting
b) I can get stuck in one place or another without it mattering too much, I’ll just go and work on the next one
c) I’m getting more actual writing done. I seem to remember that it’s the actual writing down of things which I enjoy rather than the ‘waiting for feedback’ or ‘damn, the first 13 pages are going to have to go’ parts which aren’t quite as much fun.
d) I have a feeling that time will at more of a premium in the next year than it has been this summer, when I got next to no writing done. I think that I should probably have some strategies in place to tackle that problem. This might be one of them.
Listen, I’m writing. It’s all good.
