Hello protagonists! So for the past couple of weeks I’ve been trying my best to write more for The King’s Broken Heart [KBH], the sequel to my recently released Spring-Heeled Jack [SHJ] (which you can get for FREE or on Amazon), but unfortunately I’ve been having the hardest time as of late. I’ve wanted to just sit down and write for the longest time, but for some reason I just can’t. I’ve been trying to focus so intensely on this that it’s actually done the exact opposite and deterred me from writing anything at all. Normally, I love working on small side projects that don’t really mean anything, but I haven’t even been able to do that recently. I started getting a little pessimistic and fearful.
However, after one satisfying bathroom endeavor, I realized something very important. I have such a strong desire to make KBH better in every way to its predecessor that I’m not letting myself make any mistakes at all. I would like to itterate that I’m only working on the very first draft of KBH. I have the outline completed and I’m only 3,000 words in and I’m already treating it like it’s the final draft. Instead of doing what I used to do and just write with all sorts of mistakes I’ve been holding myself back, too afraid to make any mistakes instead of just making them and then fixing them later.
Anyways protagonists, that’s all I really wanted to say this week and I needed to get it off my chest. I guess I also needed to write this for myself. I wanted to write Soda Times so I’d get some practice at just writing whatever came to mind like a free write and even then I’ve been slacking. So thank you all for tuning in and I hope you all have a wonderful day.
