Thanks for taking a look at my little hodgepodge of a blog. Take a ganger at the bottom of the page to see the Categories. That will help to make sense of my short journal entries. The format and subjects of my blog has changed through the years as it's my log of S.N.McKibben's writing journey. You've now been sufficiently forewarned, happy reading!
You really love me!
I'm getting wonderful reviews and I'm just so happy! Just take a look at these comments:
See the theme in these words?
The above lines are the beginnings of many of the reviews. They all say that you took a chance on me and I did not disappoint!
Here's the proof in many of the reviews:
The Next Book
As I write the conclusion to The Silent Road, I can't help but think "Don't fuck up, Stephanie".
Some people have imposter syndrome while they are writing their first book and might think Imposter Syndrome gets easier. I've written many books. So many books. Due to my ghost writing days, much of them do not have my name on them. I'm here to tell you Imposter Syndrome does not get easier.
For me, it's not the whole I shouldn't be writing this book, or even is this book any good? No. I have the
"Do not let the reader down like a Stephen King ending, Stephanie."
That's what I fight against. Both in the way that I don't want my story to be something the readers won't accept AKA a sucky story, but also the noise in my head going,
"Don't fuck up, good luck!"
Fast is not my forte. But fast is what needs to happen to be successful. The sequel is turning out to be shorter than the first. I may or may not need a sub plot that will tie into the main story. And I have a sub plot, but it took writing the draft to figure out what that sub plot was. Again, fast is not my forte. Will I include it? Perhaps. If it works.
But the very act of writing this all out gives me ideas. So thanks!
In the time I wrote this, I have a subplot in my head to connect the dots of my story!!
Confused? Don't worry. I'll be bringing the unexpected to you again in the next book!
Until next time...
