We are already one week into the challenge. How is everybody doing? No matter where you are in the process, as long as you are thinking about your book, then you are making progress (but it helps if you have actually managed to get some writing done too). I'd love to hear what kind of progress you are making in the comments below.
I'd like to recommend that you check out some of the posts on here from previous Chapter Book Challenges. We've had some very helpful posts from authors and agents such as Carole Blake, Becca Puglisi, Angela Ackerman, Adam Wallace, Tamora Pierce, Darren Shan, Nancy I. Sanders, Lee Wardlaw, Patti Larsen, Wendy Orr, C. Hope Clark, Yvonne Navarro, Nancy Holder, Kimberly Griffiths Little, Emma Walton Hamilton, Kimberly Kinrade, K. M. Weiland, Jo Michaels, Lisa Cherry, Karen Pokras Toz and more.
The first week of writing a new book is usually the time when you are brimming with ideas and excitement for your new story. If your lucky, that enthusiasm will carry on into the second week. But for many, the second week is when your enthusiasm begins to fade, when the words start to come more slowly and when you begin to feel like the writing of your story is more work than fun. But don't let the fading of enthusiasm make you give in. Your story can still be written and it will become fun again as you continue writing. Your characters will have a way of surprising you.
Let me know how it's going for you and as always -
