Journey of the Author #5: I'm Torn

So it’s been a while since I have done one of these posts. The unfortunate part of this is that I really have nothing new to give to you. These past few weeks have been hectic and I really haven’t had the time to either write my book or even keep to my blogging schedule on a consistent basis. Life has a funny way of throwing a curve ball your way and messing up any set schedule. But I’m not writing this to discuss that. I want to give you an update on what’s going on with my book.

As you may or may not know part of the reason for me creating this blog is to hone in on my writing skills to help me with writing my book. The last time I gave an update I shared an excerpt from my work in progress. I hate to admit it but it’s been over a month since I’ve worked on Rock Bottom: Rise from the ashes. Rejuvenate your life. After I finished the fourth chapter I felt like this work wasn’t going to convey I message I want it to.

The reason that this post is titled “I’m torn” is because I thought of another idea for a book. If you have ever had the creative spark in your life you know the feeling. When an idea comes out of thin air and compels you to work on it. That is just what happened. I had an idea for an inspirational fiction story and wrote like hell to create characters and a plot for it.

Now most of this writing occurred in a notebook, brainstorming all the ideas that I had in my head. It can be truly amazing in the moment of writing where everything just flows and ideas come at a seemingly endless pace. I haven’t gotten to writing a rough draft for this story and that is why I am torn. I don’t know whether to continue with my first book or to start with this new idea.

Something inside of me is telling me to write this new work. It is an urge of a story that has to be told. I also know that if I continue to ponder over this for too much longer then neither story will be written. Time is something that cannot be wasted.

Hopefully in the next week I will be back on schedule with the blog and will be posting on a more regular basis. I also hope to start writing this book soon as well.

  1. I often find that when it comes to writing, I need to follow my heart.
    I also believe that things ‘comes to us’ for a reason.
    Whatever you do, I know you will do it with passion and love – your heart is most certainly in the right place! 🙂
