If you’re in my readers group on Facebook, then you may have seen my post about Relentless/Club V.I.P. If you missed it, then go grab some coffee and let’s play catch up. I don’t want anyone feeling lost or confused, and I think it’s important to clariify why I came to this decision because let me tell you, it wasn’t easy.
Got your coffee? Yes? Then keep reading…
We all know I’m not a fast writer. Some days I can crank out a full chapter (more if the words are flowing,) but most of the time, I spend two, even three days on a section. Writng at night has its advantages, as in-the kids are sleeping so it’s peaceful and quiet- but I have major edit as I go syndrome (something I can’t seem to shake no matter how hard I try) and if it doesn’t read at least semi-perfect, I can’t move on. So it’s no wonder that one chapter of Relentless would take me a good solid two and a half days to get done. The problem with that is the time it cut out from focusing on actual releases. If I didn’t have so much planned or so many stories waiting to be told, I’d happily spend the time on it. But the audience wasn’t there either. Sure, I knew a web series would never be a huge thing, even if it was free, but spending all these hours to create something very few -and yes I mean very few readers were enjoying- just didn’t seem like it was worth all the trouble. At least not right now. I’m not saying I’ll never bring Hendrix and Cami back, or even Club V.I.P itself, but as of right now, I have to focus on these releases. If you’re wondering what my schedule looks like, let me give you one tiny clue. I’m booked up to Summer of 2020. Yes, you read that right…2020. #norestforthewicked
All in all, I hope you can understand why I had to throw the brakes on this. My biggest goal -aside from getting these books out- is to learn how to write faster and most importantly, how to avoid editing while writing through the first draft. If you have any ideas, help a sista out. 😉
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Until next time, babes…
