Good Start To Shadow Demons

Tonight, I finally sat down and got started on Book 4, Shadow Demons. Getting started is usually one of the hardest parts. I always struggle with finding the right place to start a novel, but in the end, I always end up rewriting the beginning. Every single time. So this time I've decided to stop stressing about the beginning and just enjoy writing. Enjoy getting back into Harper's world.

My plan is to write at least 1800 words a day. I know this book is going to be a little bit longer than the others since the story continues to get more detailed. I am thinking the rough draft will be about 60,000 words. After a few hours at Panera with writer friends, I ended up with 2622 words, which is an awesome start.

Today made me realize just how much I love to write. It felt so amazing to get back into the story. Tomorrow night, I plan to write with my best friend and critique partner, E. I can't wait to get back into the story. Writing is definitely addictive.

On another note, I made it to 9920 books sold so far since I started self-publishing. That's a combination of all three books. By tomorrow night, I should have reached the 10,000 mark! That will truly be a huge milestone.
