First draft.

Fiorst draft joy meme by Lizzie Chantree.png

Hello everyone. I’ve not been blogging much lately, as I’ve been trying to finish my latest manuscript. There are always so many things to fit into each day that I was finding my days full of anything but writing. I gave myself a stern talking to and now have almost 70k words of my latest book written. I still have the end of the story to write, but I can see the finish line. They storyline is getting tense, so I can’t wait to get back to it each day to help my characters find their resolution.

How do you cope with the ups and downs of your writing career if you are a writer? Do you jump into a story and feel emotional when a storyline leads you that way? As a reader, do you relate to the characters of a book of they are upset or excited?

I’m hoping to have the first draft of this manuscript ready to send to my editor in a couple of weeks, and then a new story will begin. It’s a whirlwind of writing, editing and fresh starts, as well as finding time to read fabulous new books. There are many great reads out at the moment that I can’t wait to open the first page of and making time to relax and enjoy a great read is, in my opinion, important for a writer too. Have a fabulous weekend. From Lizzie.

  1. Congrats on finishing the first draft. Perfect picture for it! There is never enough time…if sleep wasn’t required I’d get a lot more done! I’m looking forward to hearing about your latest!

  2. Congratulations, Lizzie! It is so hard juggling everything and there are only so many hours in the day. So, for me, blogging and responding to blogs is one of the first things that I let go of when I need to focus. Don’t worry. We aren’t going anywhere and will be more than willing to help you launch the new book when it is ready!

    • Thank you so much Jan! Having such support from the readers of my blog really helps me to keep writing. You are amazing.
