So, after I posted about writing “seaside ghost” (which may not even involve the seaside or a ghost) and WWII, I had a mini-freak out.
I was all:
Wait! Why did I say that! I know nothing about WWII!
I then proceeded to have this conversation with myself*.
Other me: Why don’t you check your reading log to see how many books on WWII you’ve actually read?
Me: Wow … that’s a lot of books.
Other me: Now, why don’t you take a quick inventory of all the WWII books you own.
Me: Even more books.
Other me: So maybe if you don’t know something, you could look it up?
Other me: …
Me: Okay. Fine. Use logic.
The lesson here (at least, I think there’s a lesson somewhere in here) is not so much start before you’re ready, but start before you feel ready.
In other writerly news, I made progress on some short stories and the project I’m still hoping to do in 2020.
And I finally, finally consolidated all the audio for Coffee and Ghosts and submitted the three-book bundle. I checked, double-checked, triple-checked the files, but I’m still worried I’m either missing one or they’re out of order.
*What. You don’t talk to yourself?
