Book one – Reality is in a Dream – was published in November and since then I have been focusing on writing Book 2 in the trilogy. It hasn’t been going well. Not well at all…
I’ve written 20,000 word, as you can see by my expertly placed picture on the right. But the more I though about what I had written, the more I began to dislike it.
I then decided to change the majority of the plot line. This was easy enough to do in my head and write notes about, but actually writing it has been a nightmare!
It was only last night that I realised why I have been having so much trouble with it.
I have been trying to re-write it directly on to Microsoft Word instead of hand writing it in a notebook first. I have always had trouble with typing directly onto a computer, but I thought that, seeing as the story has already been typed up, it would be easy for me to insert my new ideas. How wrong could I have been?
Instead, I have been searching the internet for pointless things and doing everything but writing.
Now that I know where I’ve been going wrong, I can start writing successfully again. I’ll keep you posted on my progress!
