Writing

I am trying to work on the new book...which I made a little progress on this summer. It's 250 pages, but it's still a mess. It's so frustrating trying to sort everything out. I don't know why I make everything so complicated for myself. Too many voices, non-linear time and plot. Argh.

It's also strange to have a deadline. I've never had a deadline for a novel before. It's good, but a little anxiety-inducing.

Anyway...back to work.

I can imagine that would be anxiety producing. And I can relate to some of your frustration about the complexity--I've done that to myself with my book too! The thing is that good readers do appreciate what you do and know that it is not to be taken for granted. I'm looking forward to reading all of your next books!!
