It's been almost two months since I began writing [title is a secret], and—with God's help—I have managed to keep up with my goal of a chapter a week. It certainly has not been easy. This week, in particular, has been filled with excitement, disappointment, heartbreak, and thrill; thus, the only real writing I've done has been the past two days. Thankfully inspiration has been flowing freely during this time.
One of the inevitable questions you get as an author goes something like this: "So, are you working on anything else?" If people really knew what authors were like, they would realize how utterly rhetorical a question this is. But, of course, the author must answer, "Yes, I actually am!" or even more vaguely "I have a few ideas..." These answers better translate as "Yes, I have multiple ideas, and one in particular that I am pursuing. But they are my ideas. My. Ideas. Not all written down, and certainly not at all ready for reading!" However, as the author cannot be so blunt, the unknowing reader responds, "Cool! What's it about?" To which the poor writer can only say elusively, "You'll have to wait and see."
I find that many of the best things are those which you have to wait for, and when they do come, they often arrive in unexpected ways and at unexpected times.
So, to all my dear readers: you'll just have to wait and see.
