Like I do every year, I participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  It’s been good to me in the past, it helped me write Stealing the Wolf Prince, my RONE award winning debut novel.  Book 2 in the series, Deceiving the Bandit Lord, was also a NaNoWriMo winner.

So this year I thought to write Book 3 even though Book 2 was only half way through edits.  I read books on plotting, I had my notebook ready for character and plot continuity, and I had a title, Haunting the Noble Hunter.

Well, I tell you what, my brain did not like that idea.  It stamped a big old NOPE on Book 3 because Book 2 wasn’t done.  I tried leaving comments in my draft for details I’d have to fill in later but no.  Apparently my brain doesn’t work that way.  Lesson learned and moving on.  At least I got a great opening to Book 3.  Anyone care to read it?
