Even though I know how important the edits to Personal Jesus are, I couldn’t shake the feeling I wasn’t making progress through working on book 1 when I’d already finished book 2. However, even just writing two and a half thousand words over the past few days makes me feel I’ve made huge strides forward. I knew, of course, that editing book 1 was progressing as a whole, but because I wasn’t writing for the latest book in the series I felt that my authorial momentum had stalled.
The whole time I’ve been editing Personal Jesus I’ve had scenes and dialogue for Los Angeles drifting in and out of my mind, and I can at last begin to order my thoughts.
I just hope I get to finish my first draft without my editor coming back and telling me there are more major changes to make to Personal Jesus.
*Goes back to writing with fingers crossed*
