Speeding Cars and Second Novels.
While KISS is still under consideration, I recently started my second novel and I have to say, I have never enjoyed writing as much. Maybe this is the norm when you start a new book, but I feel like this is the book I was born to write.
I'm not kidding. This book is my destiny...
I am so revved up by 4:00 p.m, after a day of writing, that I have the new urge to get in a fast car and blast down some German highway.
PS. Since I am being honest these days, I must confess...Starting this novel caused a few weeks of severe anxiety. Which was weird and scary. I was nervous that I couldn't get what was in my head transferred properly. Thank God it only lasted a few weeks... And you know what changed? When I got stuck, I pretended it was a movie. I sat back and tried to think about how what I was writing might look on screen. What would be the funnest movie version of my concept? And that did it!
Write on people!
