I’m now back into the swing of things after the Christmas/New Year period. In that time, I also got back into swimming, starting up my business again after COVID restrictions, and the writing of the 3rd novel in the “Lord Knight Hereward” series – which is about a 1/4 of the way through now. I hope to finish it within the next month or so, and it looks like (by how the arcing plot is going) that there will be a 4th possibly 5th and 6th books–maybe more. There’s so much world to explore within the Eleven Kingdoms of Landmere. I love it.
Have I set any other goals?
Well, book 1 is in proofreading now. Once I get that back, then I will perhaps look at smaller/independent publishing houses, or an agent. I’m not sure which. I would like these stories out there for others to enjoy, but hey, if not, then I’ve loved writing them, and Hereward and his son Wallace will always live in my head. I’m actually happy with that too, if nothing eventuates.
And it took me a long time to come to that realisation. Being a writer means I write. Once the words are written and I’m happy with them, then the job is done, isn’t it? What happens after that is up to the universe, as they say.
Sure, I’ll send my work off to places, but if no one likes it, or picks it up, then so be it. The journey of writing itself is the important part for me. Being published is a bonus, but not a necessity.
Anyway, I’ll try and post once a week from now on. I’ll also allow commenting on my posts for now too – which I haven’t done before. I’m also reading some great books, ones I can’t believe I haven’t heard of. I’ll give you my thoughts on those soon.
Until then, be well my friends. Love you all.
