Writing my Way Through Stressful Days

It’s great to see people are reading my time travel book Resonance on Kindle Unlimited. Every day more pages are read. That book has performed better than all the others I’ve written. For September, I’m working on outlining a sequel to it, to explore the characters a little more.

Here I am at another end of a busy and stressful week. Looking back on it, I had a few days where I let the stress and frustration of my day job get to me. But my writing helps with that, even if I end up hurting or killing off a character only to rewrite that portion when I’m in a better mood.

As I have stated, I have limited amounts of time to write, due to my day job, karate classes, and my family. So I try to make the best of what I have. I fit in an hour before work, and hour on my lunch break, and one or two hours in the evenings. I’ve finished a draft of my next book, a fantasy story with two main protagonists. Both are forced to approach the same problem from different sides. I’ve had fun writing it and rereading it. It’s almost ready for my beta readers to check out. My goal is to have it ready by the end of June. I think I can do that.

I’m proud of myself for what I have. Been able to accomplish. This week I’ve been working on a short story on my lunch break and rereading/revising my fantasy book in the mornings and the evenings. After about 10 hours of reading my book, I’m still just over one hundred pages from the end.

My days are stressful, and I may never be financially able to step away from my day job, but that doesn’t mean I can’t funnel my energy into making each book better than the last.

If you’re looking for a science fiction story, try my books The Promise of Dust or Progenitor’s Legacy: Deceit.

If a young adult science fiction is more to your liking, check out my series This New Earth, that starts with Demons of a Dead World and Secrets of a Dead World.

If you are looking for a young adult fantasy, check out my book The Threads Unbound.
