As 2019 is now in full swing, I’ve been thinking quite a lot about graduation and various changes that are happening in my life very soon, and with that, comes a lot of anxiety. Of course, writing happens to be a really great escape from a lot of that, but there’s still a good level of uncertainty and unease that still exists.
Not that I’m going to be a complete downer about it, there’s still lots of neat things coming up! For example, I’ve started thinking about my next project, which will be a YA time-travel story (that’s all I’m gonna say for now, you’ll just have to wait for the other updates). I am heading into my final semester of college next week, but hoping to get a jumpstart on the drafting so that I can work on my latest story whenever I have a free minute (which, might not be often, but it’s better than nothing, of course!).
I think with The Upperworld Series, I really pushed myself to get each installment out within 6-8 months of the previous one, which I managed to accomplish, more or less. But certainly not without some setbacks, of course. But I’m mentioning this because I’m thinking I’m going to give myself a bit more time with this new project, that way I can craft everything precisely the way I truly want to. Creativity, after all, sometimes thrives the best when there aren’t any logistical limitations. That being said, it would be nice to publish it sometime later this year, if everything goes according to plan.

Great post! I can relate to those anxious, uncertain feelings and I don’t think they’ll get any easier to deal with as time goes on *cue nervous laughter*. At least writing helps us manage it a little. I also liked reading your reflections on how your writing process has changed from book to book.
