Then I hit a wall. The relationship changed and became sexual – what I do not write now. The intrigue and mystery plot got more intense and I was able to see just how clumsy I used to be about that type of plot. And while I’ve started sprinkling some elements of faith through the story, there isn’t nearly what there needs to be — especially now that I’m removing the sexual relationship.
Long ago, when my daughter (who is 15) was nearly two-years-old, I started writing. I kept it for a secret for a while. I’d wake up at 4AM and write until 6AM, then would turn my computer off and wake the household for the day. I worked full time, and often went home on my lunch break to catch 30 minutes of writing time.
Even after my (now ex) husband knew that I was writing, I maintained that schedule. I didn’t really write any other time, and I was always alone (or the only one awake in a sleeping house) when I wrote. Writing that way, two hours a day, five days a week, I was able to write 10 books in two years.
