A Writer’s Confession

Is it possible for a writer to be intimidated by their work-in-progress? (Commonly referred to as WIP in the writing community). For me, I would have to say yes. Very much so.

Here I am, making progress on my second novel in the Love and Friendship series where Eleanor is embarking on a grand adventure around the world and I am at times petrified of the details I want to include. Am I being too ambitious in including so many countries? Do I always talk about the food in a new country? The best spots to visit? The culture? The music? When does my novel divert from, well being a novel, to a tour/travel guide? What about the plot? (Really, what about the plot? In book one, we know that Eleanor kept lots of secrets. It is time to show what they were). You have a glimpse of the chaos in my mind.

Don’t get me wrong, I am excited, I am passionate, the book is taking over in my dreams…but I am also intimidated. Just so you know.

On the plus side, I have finalized the book cover for Eleanor’s Travels 🥰

Thank you for reading! 🙃
