Now that The Voice of Prophecy is all set to be sent out into the world on Monday
–and I’ve had a short break–it’s time to get back to work on the first draft of the third book in the series, Beyond the Prophecy.
I started by reading through the first ten chapters I’d already drafted to get back into that story. There’s a problem with that, though. I had to restrain myself from revising as I went. Editor brain was still active and that won’t work for writing a first draft. I settled for making a couple of notes.
I did start writing Chapter 11. Barely. Like, I’ve written one whole sentence. Still, it’s a start. The shift from editing to drafting is always hard.
I have some really good ideas about what happens in some of the chapters immediately ahead though. I can already feel the excitement starting to build.
