Over the years (twenty-one, in all), I’ve tried writing many different styles and genre of novel — from horror to stream-of-consciousness psuedo-literary pap — with varying degrees of satisfaction and success. I’ve learned that enjoyment is a good marker of the latter (in a personal sense, at least), but when this is supported by reader reaction it’s especially rewarding.
Children of the Resolution is getting some wonderful responses, and this is definitely helping with the writing. Chapter Seven is underway (36,000 words) and, even though the more difficult chapters are ahead of me, I’m still feeling very positive.
A longer post will follow soon.
