My brain has had to go to more extreme measures to try to distract me from working on the book. It's most cunning plan to date; it's started to give me some ideas for book 2. I've noted them down and haven't been able to help but think about the theme of that book and where Nick will be at the beginning and end of it.
And then it happened. I thought of a truly kick-ass killer ending. Unfortunately, this seriously tasty idea can only be the ending of book 2 (or possibly later).
I really think book 2 will not take as long to write as this one is taking. Of course, this creative flow concerning it may actually dry up fast when that one becomes the novel I am supposed to be focusing on. I'm no genius, but my brain is freaking Hannibal Lector when it comes to distracting me. Currently though, I'm winning. I believe I will finish this book and write another. A massive change in fortunes from last year.
