How did that happen?
I'm really behind on my schedule to get it finished by the end of July but....well...I'm not that fussed. I'm still writing (when I can) and enjoying it and that's what's most important.
I put myself under a HUGE amount of pressure to get novel #1 written as quickly as possible last year (and edited as quickly as possible earlier this year) and the rest of my life really suffered as a result (particularly my social life!). By taking my time with novel #2 I actually get to have a life too AND write a short story a fortnight. Earlier this year writing felt like a bit of a chore and an additional stress in my life rather than something I was doing for the love of it so it's good to get some balance back - and actually enjoy it again!
