Yesterday I spent some time writing on my second novel, reacquainting myself with the characters and rethinking my plot and how I am getting to where I want to go with it. (That's what happens when you get in a funk and let things go for a while! You have to re-think! Refresh!)
I re-read the prologue, and the first two chapters. I added some details and today I will re-read it to see if it is captivating enough for my readers. As I write, it occurs to me that I know where the plot is going, but my reader doesn't. He/she must want to keep reading; I must captivate him with words. I know you who write already know this, so, who am I telling, anyway?! This post is just a little reminder to stay focused and stay in process!
