Well, I did it. I started another book.
Since I’m on vacation this week, I decided to dedicate the time to beginning book #3 in The Reinhold Chronicles. I was planning to wake up at dawn this morning and write the opening chapter—which was, by the way, set at sunrise. But plans change. After five and a half hours in the car, a dinner of Mom’s lowcountry boil, and two cups of Starbucks’ cold brew…
The end result was that I wrote until 11:15 last night, and chapter one ended up being set at sunset instead of sunrise. Go figure.
If all goes well, I’ll have all three of these volumes completed before I publish the first one. A little weird? Maybe, but I can’t exactly help myself. I have to write them. Still, I can’t wait to share this world and its characters with the world.
Book three is probably going to prove the hardest to write. It’s longer, more complex, and is physically and emotionally brutal. This is the third act. This is the climax.
But I’m not there yet. Just one step closer.
(So, I thought I’d add a little postscript detailing my current soundtrack and tea of choice for writing.)
Soundtrack: Mockingjay Part 1 by James Newton Howard
Tea: Lapsang Souchong
