After some revisions, I have finally completed my outline for my second novel. I’m not sure what to call it yet, but I’m excited to start working on it as soon as I am finished with my first book.
My second novel will.be set I’m italy somewhat in the late 1990’s. Civilized and the uncivilized will clash along the edges of a small North Italian town and the surrounding forest. A feral child will be the front soldier as he is pushed into both the forest and the town the other humans want him to live in.
In other news, I have nearly completed my short story that I have been having fun writing while on my short break. I’ve been having so much fun that I could set it as a potential book. It’s only a first draft, and I will have peer readers and critics tear it to shreds with red ink, but I feel more confident about this story compared with the others I have not yet finished.
For those who have piles of unfinished projects in a folder or smothered in a closet, it’s perfectly fine to hold them off until your next creative muse strikes. Forcing a story to come out will likely make it cluttered and unorganized. Just let it happen naturally.
