Writing a Book After 5 Years

The last time I wrote and published anything goes all the way back to November 2014. I released the first episode of season two of The Permanant Man. At the end of the book, I wrote a message to the reader letting them know I will no longer be writing fiction. This was for a number of reasons I won't go into here. Though if you purchase the episode you can find out what I said. Wink. Wink.

It was a difficult decision at the time, but I had to do it. I hated not finishing the series for those who read it to that point.

Fast forward now to over five years later and something has happened. As you know, Imaginary Me is being turned into an audiobook. And the process of doing this has re-inspired me to again write fiction.

It's kind of scary. I haven't done it in so long. It's like learning to do it all over again. Will I remember the things I learned before? Can I take the time to do it? Is it like "writing" a bike and it'll all just come back to me? So many things come into play.

Now, the way I started this post you might assume that I'm moving forward with completing the second season of The Permanent Man. Well, unfortunately, that's not the case.

You see, I have another series that goes back further than that.



I wrote two books for The Fram Gage Series and left the second one on a cliffhanger that hasn't been resolved. I realized I need to finish that book before I go after the other unfinished work. (Ugh, I sound like one of those writers that likes to start things but not finish them.)

And so, after re-reading the first two books and discovering that I had written the first eight chapters for book three, I'm ready to start writing fiction again. I don't plan on using all of what I already wrote almost eight years ago but I will use some of it, along with some plot points I thought were interesting.

This morning, right before I wrote this blog post, I outlined the story I've decided on so it was clear in my head. Tomorrow, the real writing begins.

Let's do this.
