Yes, I spelled the title right.
Over the last week I’ve been writing a second book to go with the one I finagled to write in a month.
I thought I should go into the second book. sIt was on my mind more than any other story, what happened is I hit the wall and the brakes went out.
I didn’t break, but the brakes failed when the wall approached.
I’ve never tried to write a follow-up. I didn’t know what it entailed. I had no idea that staying within one universe in my head, at least for me, caused me to reevaluate.
Now that I’m through the wall, onto the other side I’m working on something else. Its different from the fantasy I’d been writing.
It will take reading a genre I’ve had difficulty reading in the past.
There are many reasons for the difficulty of the genre but I had realization about it and it “should ” be better now.
Now that I’m through the wall, braking down may have been the best thing to happen.
My mind needed a break from the story. This morning I slept longer than I have in a while, I thank my wife for letting me rest.
Sometimes our work comes crashing to halt because our mind is telling us to take a break. So I’ve tapped the brakes on the story, started another because I don’t have a button that says stop.
Have you hit a wall recently in your writing or life? This one took me a couple of weeks to sort out. But I’m better for it.
