Oh writing how I missed thee.
I have considered sending out another round of queries but I am concerned about my overall effectiveness of my query letter. I am continuously reading and tweaking my query letter. It seems that because this is my first query letter, I am probably thinking that it is better than it really is. That could be a huge problem.
The only thing that I knew, was that I couldn't sit and do nothing. I considered my options and decided to begin book 2 of my series. I am querying the first book and now it is time to start working on the next book. I really struggled in finding the correct spot to restart my story. It took a surprisingly long time to come up with it. I am pretty satisfied with where I am starting. I began writing last week and really forgot how much I love the pure aspect of writing. It's really blissful.
The area I love most is attempting to put this story that is in my head onto a blank piece of paper. That blank paper was empty and now...just days later, the first chapter of my second book is done. I am 4,000 words finished for the first chapter. I am wondering if I should do things quite differently than the first book. I decided to edit the first chapter instead of writing and writing and writing. I initially thought that quality would arrive in the editing stage. During my first draft, that might have hurt me more than I realized.
But I am back to writing and hoping that the first book snags me an agent, but regardless, I love writing!! So far, book 2 is called SHATTERED.
