My guest post on a young indie author’s blog was published today!
In her own words, Kellyn Roth is a Christian historical women’s fiction & romance author from North-Eastern Oregon who has independently published multiple novels, the most notable being The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy series.
My guest post is about my experience writing a novel last month. Here is a snippet:
I remember vividly that feeling I had on the morning of June 22nd.
Before June 22nd, I had always thought that I would be ecstatic when I wrote the last word of my novel, Senses. I had imagined that the milestone would bring terrific excitement.
But instead of running around the house shouting, when I finished my novel, I was stunned.
This was different from the time that I had finished my first novella, Booker Bunny, after years of on-and-off work. This was different from the time I had finished completely rewriting Booker Bunny.
I had just written my first full-length novel–50,000 words of hard work–in 22 days.
I had never considered myself a rapid writer, and I still don’t, so I was surprised when I surpassed my ambitious goal of writing my first novel in a single month. But looking back, I can see several things that led to my success. Today, I’m going to share those with you.
