Life After Publishing – Psyche

What to do after the debut novel is published?

Why write more of course!

Over time my writing has become stagnant but life is changing and my mindset is changing therefore my writing habits must change as well. Like Dr. Frankenstein with his monster, I need to breathe new life into my writing and start again.

And I am. But rather than continue with Shadow’s Strength, NT’s sequel, I’ve once more picked up Psyche. I’m hoping to renew my old habits of writing at least 1k words every week day and if I can then this novella should be completely done (editing and all) by the end of January-February. I add in February because I have no delusions about how often I’ll write during the holidays when I’m off visiting people.

However, I also know that the longer I do my daily writing, the more used to it I get and then the more I end up writing each day. So I’m optimistically looking at a release date of February 1st which would be really good because the story is about love and February is the month of love.

Should we go for that then and dare me to be late?

Okay! But if the story turns out to be longer than 40k, then the deal’s off.

About Katie St. John-Shin

I believe in living life and not letting it pass you by. I mean, come on, if you really want to do something but don't have the courage to do it so you let the opportunity disappear, you may regret it for the rest of your life. How can you know what you're capable of unless you go for it? Like every writer, I naturally plan on becoming a world-famous writer. I love reading, writing, fitness, coffee, watching my favorite movies/shows, listening to music, and trying new things even if they're sometimes terrifying. I'm a stay-at-home mom, a writer, and a POP Pilates instructor. I didn't think I'd succeed at that last one but I did it! I confronted my fears, dealt with things I didn't want to deal with, and completed the training! POP Pilates classes are coming soon to mid-Nebraska!
