I'm going to get brutally honest here for a minute, and it's probably the most personal I've been through my author channel, but I fell into a bit of a dark hole after I released Midnight Rain. I was questioning this 'hobby' and whether I should continue, I just couldn't find the motivation to write - and I am sorry that I left you guys with that little cliffy, but I couldn't bare to force myself to write the story because it wouldn't have done the characters justice if it was forced. So, I just waited.
And then when I still couldn't find the creative juices in me to keep going, something changed at the beginning of 2020 and life as we knew it - just stopped. It changed. And it made me peel back the layers on everything that was taking my focus, and before I knew it, the writing process began again. But the down-time had to happen. Because, writing shouldn't be forced. The words mean more on the page if they flow naturally, and as a reader - we feel that. So I am super pleased and excited to say, that I have been writing (and writing and writing) and I have finished two brand new novels, which are a duet to a brand new series and an amazing group of characters. Lake Shore Uni #3 is still coming - it's just taking a little longer on that creative journey than I would've hoped - but their story will be ready in time...
So I guess I wanted to pop in and say it's okay if you are struggling with motivation, or if you too, had found yourself in a hole that you didn't know how to get out of. It's okay. Take your time, and relieve yourself of any pressure you put on yourself to have all the answers. Because in time, they will appear when you least expect them too.
You just need to give yourself time.
