We saw Solo in 3D on Saturday for my husband’s birthday. The reason for the title of this blog. Yes, since my son got into Star Wars Angry Birds several years ago I have since become quite the geek. We even have the LEGO Death Star set. Although it’s the open-sided version, it’s still pretty cool.
Some time has passed since I blogged, but I think it’s time I write about my current goings-on.
I’ve been back to writing my second book, Divided, for several months. I have about 240 pages complete, but have several chapters to go. For me, it’s been difficult to write in Corbin’s voice because I have to be in a certain mood to do it. I also realized I’ve been sleeping much better recently. While I wrote my first book, I was awake into the early hours of the morning and most of the writing was done after 1am. Hence, I’ve been retraining my brain to work during the day.
My new iPad Pro 12.9 (that I absolutely LOVE) has been extremely helpful with Microsoft Word to help me carry my book with me everywhere I go! I’ve been using it with OneDrive so it automatically updates and if I really wanted to… I could open it up on my laptop and keep going from where I left off (I don’t want to open my laptop). So while I sat in my car during Tae Kwon Do class for an hour, three times per week, I could do something productive.
These days, since my son earned his 1st Dan black belt, he’s tried a few new things. For close to three months, he learned some Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which was a little too horizontal, grapple-y, and sweaty for what he wanted to do. He and my husband decided to try Karate together, so now they’re two weeks into training, but they seem to enjoy it. The best part is I get alone-time at home to continue writing. Much easier to keep the flow going.
The next novel in the Divided Series picks up where we left Corbin in Indelible, walking from the Florida State Prison on his search for Christine, back to the dark realm of Malvolem. All his memories have returned and he is confident he can find her. Lucian throws a wrench in his plans though, complicating their re-entry to the light realm of Elypsus.
Corbin gained a basic understanding of his background and of the realms in Indelible. Divided takes him deeper into the storm as all of his past catches up to him and he must reconcile who he is with what he was. He now has the knowledge it will take to dethrone Lucian as the Fates have commanded of him, but many obstacles lie ahead as he gathers his allies in Elypsus and Malvolem.
Demons, both metaphysical and metaphorical, haunt him as he continues on the path the Fates have laid out for him.
Read Indelible before Divided is published! Dates TBA.
