Book three draft is in!

Okay, so after¬†what feels like months of sitting around worrying about book three I have finally pulled enough of it together to send it to my editor for comments. This is possibly the most nerve racking stage of the process for me. On the one hand I wonder if I’ve been able to produce the magic that got my first book published and on the other I wonder if the story is even still interesting. Parts of it I love – others I know just aren’t flying yet.

But I’m being kind to myself and understanding that this is part of the process. It also helps me to read other authors blog posts which make me feel less alone in this process. I was over at the lovely Lynn Raye Harris’s site two days ago and she was lamenting a similar thing and I was able to exhale. Okay, if seasoned pros can still feel angsty over their manuscripts maybe my editor won’t look on my halfbaked contribution and sigh with frustration.

Writing is such a funny business. So full of extremes of emotions. Somedays are high highs and others are low lows but still I persist. It’s like¬† a drug. The joy of seeing a story unfold. Listening to the voices in my head and having them turn into real people. Feeling what they feel… it’s addictive, what can I say!

And now back to watching Fast & Furious – which really, could do with a little more romance. Maybe I’ll have to write my own version. What fun!
