Status: Drafting the fourth book in the PERILOUS series!

Now What?

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I finished rewriting Branca, and I absolutely love the changes. Of course, I'm sure the ending is stiff and needs molding, as everything I write does after the first draft. But it's done and I'm putting it aside for now.

Then, I stretched my fingers, wiggled the tips, and got busy on the requested changes for Walk Beside Me. First, I made a calendar of events, attaching a month and date to each action in the book. Next, I made an outline for our detectives: when and what they are going to do on each of these dates. Exciting!

So I'm ready to go. Except--now what? Am I supposed to actually start writing something? Uh-oh. I don't know what to write! I've never been a detective! :::slinking down on the couch::: It looks like I'm going to need to contact the local police department and ask for some help. B/c I really don't know where to go from here.

Oh boy. This is going to be harder than I thought!

How fun to add another point of view. It adds SO MUCH to a story. And I love that it will help diversify your demographic.

It's fun getting updates on your writing...how do you have time to do this with kids? :) Good luck!

I'm impressed by all the LDS writers out there writing with small children. I wasn't that organized to ever finish much but the occasional story for the Friend, and lots and lots of journal writing.
