It's time to start...and I'm stuck!

Sunday, I officially finished my first round of edits on Operation: Endeavor and sent it out to my beta readers. Now I sit on pins and needles, waiting to find out if it's any good or not...and just desperately hope they love Colton as much as I do. ;o) Since then, I haven't written a single word.

Not. a. single. word.

I know it's only been three days. That may not seem bad, but to me, it feels like an eternity, especially with Operation: Endurance lurking. I've said from the very beginning that Endurance was going to be challenging to write. Now that I am faced with it, I think I'm a bit terrified and am frozen with it.

Not. good.

So, I'm stuck and not sure what to do. I could just keep reading other people's amazing writing and enjoy the Olympics (which I've been luxuriating in for the last three days.) Or I could suck it up and write, realizing this book is going to need and take a lot of work. I know, I's time to suck it up.

Or I may just write a short fun novella beforehand to break the tension and emotion that will be Endurance. ;o) I know, right? Like I don't have enough books started already....

Regardless, I hope everyone is having a great week!!


  1. Awww, it'll all work out. Your words will come back to you and flow on the paper.
    Maybe your beta readers are too busy enjoying your book to give you any feedback, yet. ;)

  2. I feel your pain, Christi! I think we need a bit to fill the well before jumping in again. Knowing Beta readers are playing with your last love isn't settling, either. I hope you'll find the words soon.
