The struggle to write

It’s the day after New Year’s Day
Yes – I was writing yesterday but I found it tough. Actually I intended to just edit, thinking I had finished the writing but then found I had forgotten an important detail in the plot so I had to go back to this. Anyway, every time I was close to getting on the PC something would come up and I just couldn’t get there until late evening. It messed my day up and messed with my head. I often feel that someone or something is trying to stop me. Its a weird feeling but not unlike the feeling the guy in the book has. I guess that’s why I wrote it. Nevertheless, I wish I didn’t have to go through these trials. I did complete the main story and now I am back on editing. I am making good progress so I hope that I won’t have that feeling any more.
I have a sci-fi idea for my next book – at least an idea which I think would best be presented in a sci-fi format, and I am optimistic that this will be easier to write. I need a break from the intensity of writing this last book.
In editing it I am cutting out large chunks which do not work but it is a pleasure to read again the bits that do work. I will soon be looking for reviewers of the book (in draft form) so if you are interested, get in touch.
