As you can see, the new book is finished. It's not yet available through Amazon.com, but should be after Easter. It went a lot more quickly than I thought it would. Happy Dance!
I'm writing again. Monday through Friday I am writing three pages a day. I should be done with the first draft of the new book by the end of June. This one I am writing for Steeple Hill. It's challenging, but a good challenge. I know I can do it.
And while that is going on, my mind toys with the idea of a second book to follow Inheritance - another story with the same characters, exploring some different issues as lives of secondary characters unfold. Am I crazy to try to write two books at once? I tell myself, "YES! Leave it alone, pace yourself." But my self says, "We can do one book on week days and the other on weekends." Right...
So the good news, then, is that the writer's block has lifted. I miss my Sugar Booger, but I can write again. =)
