Keeping it short and sweet this week.
I thought about adding the next chapter after this one to the story, but the ending of the first part really needs a good break, so I left it here. It might end up being in the end of the previous chapter since it’s not very long at all.
I have divided the book and am beginning my review of the Tangled Magic section of it. I’ll have to re-imagine the ending a bit because it’s not solid right now, but it will all sort itself out. I trust the process. And I know it will be spectacular.
Thank you to readers who have finished Prince of the Ruined Land and excitedly wrote to me to find out if I was going to have the 5th Sacred Knight out soon (The Missing Thread) or these books in the Onesong series. Yes, Onesong is up next. I feel that I needed this part of the story first. The Missing Thread is my current Frankenstein’s monster. Well, sort of. It’s more like pieces and parts lying all around my lab on shelves waiting for me to return to them.
I have wondered if Steigan’s uncertainty is what is keeping me from writing the scene where Keteria wakes up. This is my biggest unknown at the moment. It’s not like I haven’t written the scene where she wakes up; I’ve actually drafted 4 different versions of it, then threw them all out because they aren’t right. Steigan is so worried about her and what’s going to happen, that I now have the nervous jitters about it.
I keep reminding myself that I will trust the process and let her wake up as she will. Then I will discover what happens. I don’t need to force it or try to pre-plan it; that’s the worst thing I could do. I just need to be writing.
I did try last weekend to sink into The Missing Thread and start writing the story — a new beginning imagined again because of where I ended Prince of the Ruined Land. Yes, it was a little weird because I hadn’t thought about some of the characters being there — that was a last minute decision.
Besides, there’s Loki with 1-800-IceBaby coming up soon. And Mystery of the Stardust Monk. Don’t worry; you’ll still have some summertime reads. *grin*
If I get back to writing, that is. Finishing up here so I can go record some more of the adventure. Later!
Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 45 is available for 1 week only! Then it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear!
