I have been ignoring The Lost for almost a month. I feel awful about it and I chalked it up to crazy self-publishing time crunch and more important priorities, but in reality, I was avoiding the manuscript because I was stuck.
I wasn’t necessarily blocked, but I got stuck in the middle and I couldn’t find my way out. Until today…
I’ve been reading a new book by Jessica Page Morrell called, Thanks, But This Isn’t For Us, it’s amazing how one little piece of advice can let a glimmer of light in and then you can see the whole problem. I was almost late to work this morning because I couldn’t stop plotting and writing notes about all the scenes that suddenly made sense to me.
I feel a renewed sense of purpose with this story and I know Jessica’s book gave me the extra push I needed to get back in the saddle.
