I finished my first draft on Back of Beyond. This will be the second book in The Legend of Spoon series. I switched to writing my first drafts into a journal years ago. There is something about having to slow my ideas enough to get them written onto paper that feels amazing. And when I’m deep into creating a story I need my journal with me at all time. My best ideas seem to come in the middle of the night, when I first wake up, or in the shower. Next I will type this draft into a Word document. Then I will walk away from it for one to three months.
