Making progress. I spent much of July doing book research, outlining, struggling with chapter one, and goofing off doing summer things.
I got a little fed up at my lack of progress, so declared (quietly, to myself) that I would get my ass in gear starting on Monday, August 4th. Not for any particular reason other than I would be just returning from a four day trip to Minnesota for my sister-in-law's wedding.
Two days in and things are going great. I changed the starting point for Chapter One and it has really improved the flow of the chapter. 2,000 words over two days isn't bad for late evening writing. And now that I'm into it, I'll start moving faster.
Child of the Knight is getting very good reviews, but sales are slow. I'm not going to make the same mistake I made after Eternal Knight. After EK I had hoped that awesome sales would motivate me to write more books.
I had it wrong. Writing more books motivates readers to buy more books.
Oops. Back to work.
