And, the chapters within those parts are the smaller steps you need to take to achieve the end result promised by the book. I want to create something that will be of benefit to the reader and help them achieve the result promised by the book if they take the actionable steps. The fiction editor came as a recommendation from a podcast that I listen to on a regular basis.
But, I was on the website for the second editor, and I was unsure if they edited nonfiction because there was no frequently asked questions page. I emailed them and mentioned not being able to find the FAQ page and that I wanted a basic line edit and a proofread for nonfiction. When I got the reply, I had to read the email a couple of times to be sure I interpreted the response correctly.
Maybe not worse but my insecurity has changed over time. At one stage I was in my own bubble and though my stories where good. After I finished writing Immunity, I started to worry that no-one else would like to tread my thriller novel. When I wrote Silence, I started to question my ability to write excellent prose, even though I loved writing the novel. As I wrote Missing, I became hung up on realism in the story. But, now as I look back at that book after writing my fourth book, I can see the flaws.
Well, at least not for me.
Making mistakes is how you learn and grow as a writer. I know that sounds crazy but hear me out. This new series features the supporting cast from Missing. Not all of the supporting cast but only three or four people. Events in book one of the new series happen before Missing, so I now have a few restrictions as I write.
The archaeological thrillers will feature a male protagonist instead of the female I had initially imagined.
But, I love writing from the male characters point of view. I plan to write one James Lalonde Thriller than an archaeological thriller and rotate the releases. Obviously, this plan will take effect after the release of Missing, Silence, and Immunity. For the sake of accountability here is a short list of the major tasks I need to complete next week. Or, do you prefer the diary to be more focused around a single topic with actionable steps?
