I finally settled down to finish the historical novel (the sequel to my novel Ann Angel's Freedom). So far I had done all of the events that take place in 1848, the year of the German Revolution and I will have to write the flashbacks into the years 1810-1844 now. Just when I started I got my monthly writing-newsletter The Tempest (German only) and guess what: one of the biggest German paperback-publishers just started a competition to find the best historical novel. As if that isn't a sign...
Of course I will now focus on getting the first draft finished as fast as possible. I hope to polish the first 50 pages to the deadline and finish the rest of the rewrite before x-mas. Please keep your fingers crossed for me.
