I finally finished the first chapter of Retribution. It’s been really tough for me finding the mental energy to work on it because of all the editing and other work I’ve been doing for my job, but we had a writing sprint workshop at my writers group tonight, and I managed to blow through most of the rest of the first chapter. I just finished it up now. It’s always slow going with new stories because you’re creating an entirely new cast of characters from scratch, which also entails a whole lot of character development that has to take place.
This is also the first time I’ve written horror / suspense, so I want to make sure I do a good job with it. This isn’t a genre I’ll write often I don’t think, but it is one that I wanted to explore. I’m pretty sure my next book will be a paranormal novel of some sort, but I’m not sure what form it’ll take. I’ll think more about it as I get closer to finishing this one.
Anyway, I just wanted to post a little update. I’m pretty excited about this one. I just need to find the time and the energy to keep myself in the cycle of working on it daily.
