I have some bad news, and I have some good news. As the type that likes to get the painful stuff out of the way immediately, I’ll start with the bad news.
I’m struggling with writer’s block. 😦
Specifically with Dual Blessed. I’ve gone nearly a month and a half without any idea of how I’m going to get from the beginning to the end. I’ve got a good start, and I know how I want it to end … but that middle is like an empty blank wall.
The good news?
I think I’m finally starting to tear down that wall. I did some heavy adjustments the day before yesterday, and after removing a couple of unnecessary scenes (cute ones, but ultimately unnecessary and probably the source of my stagnant plot) I jotted down a couple of new ideas to explore.
I’m still going to take things slowly – I don’t want to force the story. I want a satisfying resolution, one that meets my high standards and sets the book above the previous installments, and I hope my readers do too. It may mean this last volume is delayed a little bit, but I promise you: I’ll make sure it’s worth the wait.
