This week I've been writing feverishly on my next novel, DEAD OF WINTER. I've started getting up between 5:30 and 6:30 a.m. each morning. I rouse myself out of bed, blend a chocolate-banana smoothie, and off I go. I write for a couple hours before going to work my day job as a video editor.
It feels great to be back in the flow of writing. My muse had been on a vacation for a couple months (I think she went to Tahiti) and I barely got much written. Sometimes I go through periods where I get too caught up with other activities that fiction writing falls to the back burner. Now that my muse is back and stoking the fires of my imagination, I'm getting closer and closer to completing my second novel.
