Our Heroine Hits a Productive Patch

Posted on: June 20, 2011

Ever since BROKEN was published, I’ve noticed that I’ve become… productive.

Really. My previous output was two drafts of books written in about four years. Counting the draft if THE SPARK I finished last night, I’ve started and finished two drafts in about six months (though, to be fair, the first few pages of THE SPARK were written two years ago, I just had no idea what to do with them).

Something about being published has made me want to write more things. People are reading what I’m writing, so I’ll write them more things to read!

I’m sure part of this is that I’m not spending hours each day writing for and managing a political website; that ate a tremendous amount of my time and energy. But really, I got such a boost of energy when BROKEN came out that I haven’t stopped writing since. The result is two drafts that I think I can shape and edit into halfway decent books.

When my old writing teacher said to keep writing, she really wasn’t kidding.

In any event, it looks like it’ll be a long time before you’re all rid of me. I don’t have a first draft to work on for the first time in a while, so now I can do nothing but edit and plot out what I want to write next.

How do YOU get inspired to write?
