Just finished the 1st draft of my next book

I been on a writing frenzy for the past week and a half, minus a trip out of state where my husband and I had to spread ashes, making me have 23 chapters of a new book. It is one that I had ponder over in my head. It is a short novel and now the first draft is complete. Committing myself to writing 1000 words each day did the trick.

It has been a while since I wrote daily like I use to in the past. It helps you forget what is going on around you. In an odd way it is a mental break from life.

Writing is a need for those of us who are writers. Regardless how much we write at any sitting just doing it does a body good mentally and physically. This was something I never understood until I began to write.

The new book is volume two to my Squirrel Mafia book that has been received very well. People have asked me repeatedly if I had planned on writing book two. My answer had always been no. That was until they continued to give me information to use to write about. I started to write down topics every time they did something different from what I wrote in book one. The list ended up exploding.

I have also enjoyed editing the first draft. Yes, even I Sharon C. Williams has said those hated words out loud and have told someone as well. I am enjoying editing a book. I hate editing like it is a fire in my gut. But right now I am having soooooo much fun.

I will need to work on revising soon and getting it reviewed by my critique group. But this has been a project I am absolutely enjoying.
