Last week I started working on A DIFFERENT KIND OF KNIGHT (DKK for short). The writing was slow and I am only two chapters in. (And as usual, I need to go back and add, as my first chapter is only 3 pages long. Sigh. Oh well!)
At first I worried about why it was taking so long to get my ideas down. I had an outline of sorts, I knew where my story was going to go, and then it hit me. This was the first time in about one year that I was starting something from scratch.
The last three things I have worked on were revisions of a previous draft. No wonder this was taking longer to get down, as I have not learned my characters inside out yet. (Well, one of them I have, and his chapter was writing much easier than my other characters!)
What are you working on? Is it something new or revisions? Are you finding it hard to get into it, or has it swept you away like a rain swollen river? I'd love to hear about it, so share below!
