#Writing a New Book while Promoting the Latest #Release The Writer’s Mind
So, as you know, yesterday was the big release day for TO PROTECT HIS OWN, which has three good reviews so far, so thanks to all my readers for supporting me.
However, the last two months I’ve been writing Deadly Seduction and right at the climatic scene, so its getting pretty intense. But its also the hardest part for me to write and I tend to sit and stare at the computer with a puzzled expression all day, then at about ten at night, I get cranking and I’m up till two, like last night, which is bad because I’m not a night person, and I have an internal clock for 5 in the morning.
What I find hard about promoting a book when I’m this deep in another one is that when someone asks me about the latest release, I start talking about the one I’m writing and people are like, huh…what? I almost have to the the week off writing and re-read the release and only focus on that.
The other problem I have has to do with getting to the climactic scene. Since I generally know where the book is headed when I start since the first scene I visualize is usually the either the dark moment, or the resolution, I’ve replayed the climactic scene so many times in my head its hard to write, and my mind wonders because I’m starting to think about my next project…which is going to be a Novella in the Kindle World, The Omega Men, which I’m very excited about and the hero for this book keeps tapping his foot with his arms folded, not waiting for me to finish.
The way I solve that problem is I start a spreadsheet of ideas. Usually keeps the characters placated. While I finish up with current WIP. Then when that is at the editor, I go hog wild on the next one.
My mind is a scary place, just saying…
How do you deal with all this stuff going on inside your head!?
FYI: DEADLY SEDUCTION pre-order is only 0.99, but that won’t last. Release day it will go up to 3.99, so order now.
