Novel Update: 7/23/2017

 

Hi Everyone,

Sorry, I haven’t posted in a while. Finally taking some time to chill out and update everyone on my progress.

I’m deep into the writing phase of this novel. When it comes to writers, they say there’s two kinds: architects and gardeners. I’ve always preferred the more structured approach of the architect, but for this novel, I’m embracing a more fluid, spontaneous style. As a result, I’m discovering a lot about the characters and the story as I write it. Which keeps things exciting to say the least.

Next, I just want to say thanks to all who send positive comments and direct messages my way. Really grateful for all the support I’ve been getting. I read every single message and I want to respond to every one of them. Thank you so much for the encouragement. It means a lot.

Stand by for some cool news in the next couple of weeks, I’ll be doing a title reveal as well as hopefully doing some other cool stuff, sharing some more details. I’m very excited to be bringing this story to you and can’t wait for you to check it out!

-Peter

Vacation is over. Back to work!

Well, vacation is finally over. When it was all said and done, I visited quite a few places – Wichita, Kansas; Philadelphia, PA; New York, NY; and New Jersey. Overall, it was a really good experience and I got a lot of perspective, especially being in New York City, which is home to a number of writers at every level of their careers.

But the most important part of the trip was that I got to spend some quality time with friends and family. Before the trip, I hadn’t taken a vacation in over two years. As I get older, I realize there’s no way to make up for that lost time so this vacation was especially sentimental in many ways. While living abroad and writing your novel sounds like a brilliant idea, it sadly comes at a cost and I’m constantly thinking of when I’ll be able to make the transition back over to the States again. To my friends and family, I can only say thanks for the support while I pursue this dream. Love y’all!
