Today I started work on The Emerald Dragon, the final book in The Lost Ancients' trilogy!
*confetti flies everywhere*
I have to say it's a really weird feeling. I am excited at starting a new book (is there anything better than those first couple of pages? SQUEEE!). I am also terrified at wrapping everything up. And, lastly, a bit sad that this will end this trilogy. (Note: I said trilogy....doesn't mean this world or characters are over-ya never know what may happen down the line ;))
But hitting on those first words, the ones that more than likely will be changed, felt amazing. Starting a brand new book. The feeling of "I can go anywhere!" a bit contained since this is a third book and it seriously has some 'splaining to do (and all sorts of shenanigans).
But all of a sudden, I'm back in the world. I have no idea what's around the corner when Taryn strolls down to The Shimmering Dewdrop this fine morning (why I love being a pantser- I get to find out what happens as it does! (yes, I hear the plotters whimpering in the corner ;))). Nor why Crusty Bucket has found a new song to sing. But I know it's happening.
This book publishing journey is a wild ride, especially with going Indie. But getting back to WHY we do this, the wonderful fun of writing, that's where true happiness is (all of you, remind me of this statement a feww weeks from now when things go sideways ;)).
So go out and do something great today!
