Hartland Series Update

We’ve been real quiet on all our social media websites lately. We apologize for it, but the simple truth is we’re struggling with writing. There have been far too many days where we haven’t written a single word. A part of that is because of the struggle it’s been in finishing Book 5 in the Hartland series. It’s kind of funny to think about. Books 1-4 came oh so easily. Book 5? Nope. Not in the slightest.

Part of the struggle is trying to combine all the pieces and make sense of all the story lines in the books. A lot happened in books 1-4. I have many plans for book 5. We’re over 50k in words, so not too bad of progress, but it’s taken quite a while to get there. Also, things just kind of keep happening to the characters I didn’t plan on. He He. With that said, I have to rework some of the plot because of what happened and probably come up with a new ending. What happened was just too good to remove. Other writers will know what I’m talking about. Characters truly have a mind of their own!

My aim is to finish the first draft by the end of September! Here’s to hoping I can do that and not get snagged on plot holes and plot developments. Characters need to do what they’re supposed to do! Silly people.

  1. I can imagine how difficult it must be to keep hold of all the threads when writing a series. It’s been hard enough for me just writing the third book of a trilogy, let alone fifth. Just keep at it and things will come together in the end – provided you pull the right threads, I suppose. (At least, that’s what I keep telling myself!) 😀
