Happy New Year! I hope the first month of the year has been good to you all. It has been a very busy start for my family so far. We put our house up for sale just before the holidays and will be moving soon. Between packing boxes, I’ve tried to squeeze in a little work on book 2.
I participated in NaNoWriMo again back in November and luckily was able to power through my first draft. A couple days ago, I reached the end of chapter 2 on my second draft. While I wish I could find a little more time than I am giving it right now, I know soon I will be able to. I have quickly found out that moving a family of 6 takes a LONG time and a LOT of boxes! My new house will have an office overlooking the front yard and I can already picture myself writing there…
A little bit about book 2! It will be taking place in Maple Falls again, surrounded by some familiar characters, as well as a few new ones. The main character in this book will be Mary Bradford. If you read book one, you will remember her from the coffee shop. She is Linda’s (the owner of the coffee shop) daughter. She was briefly introduced in the craft night scene and again later at the coffee shop. It will be set around Christmas time may or may not be wedding bells 🙂 More to come about book 2 soon!
Back to packing more boxes and praying for warmer weather closer to the move. Moving in winter in MN is anything but ideal, but I did happen to see a few 40’s peek in to the forecast coming up.
Have a wonderful week and I’ll update again soon!
