Another Bend in the Road

My intention was to finish the revised draft this summer and have it off to the beta-readers by the first of September. Four days after my last blog there came another bend in the road; I discovered I was five weeks pregnant. 😃

This is a dream-come-true, as my husband and I were trying to conceive for over a year. But like any dream there are drawbacks. Without going in to too much detail, my first trimester was draining.

Now, half-way through, I am feeling more like myself. I’m pondering much, including whether I want this novel to be my first published work or if I want to let it marinate it just a bit longer. I feel like there is a deeper story to be told with the WIP and I don’t want to short-change the work just because I want to publish.

So the quick update is this: I’m planning for NaNoWriMo 2018 and enjoying this blessed baby-on-the-way.

What bends in the road have you experienced during your writing journey?
