In my books I’m writing about war, war that’s waged against those who are different from societal norms, war against those who are invading from other words, but in moments my characters find peace. They find peace amongst themselves and in the worlds they’re living in and in life it’s needed. You need to have light with the dark if you’re going to have a balanced story, and you need the balance with life as well.
I’ve been busy with getting first edits on Redux done and it’s definitely going to be released in the first six months of this year. I’ve been challenging myself with 365 days of writing, and tracking progress on Twitter. I’ve missed a couple days since going back to work (but I write there too, so it kind of all counts right?), but I find I’m a habits person and keeping myself accountable is working in my favour for now. By the end of the year I’m hoping to finish at least the first draft of End Game (book three in the series) and get more work done on the marketing side of things.
But, I’ve gotten to the point in my life where I’ve found some peace, and it’s helping my writing no ends. Sometimes we need to take a note from our characters and find the peace in moments of madness if we’re going to have the strength we need to achieve our goals.
