Second Book Syndrome

Well Meaning Pal ( WMP) “Hey Kathy, how’s the new book coming along?”

Me: Look at this thing I did on Instagram.

WMP: So the new book..?

Me: Yeah, sorry, I’ve got fencing training, and I don’t want to be late…

 

WMP: I heard it was much easier to get a second book published.

Me: WHY DO YOU HATE ME SO MUCH?

Thank god for writer friends on Facebook reminding me I am not alone. I love you. You are all fab. And hey, it’s not QUITE that bad (now.)

Last week I wanted to put a brick through my computer.

Now, I’ve just started on the fourth draft, the one where I tweak all the relationships, and you know what?  It’s not rubbish.  I like it. Some of it, I really like.

Of course that’s today. Tomorrow I might be reaching for the brick…

  2. Step away from the brick! Not been on FB lately to see your woe, but second book syndrome isn’t uncommon, for lots of sensible reasons. You’ll get there Mrs xx
