About every week online, on various author pages and blogs, I see fans of authors like George R.R Martin getting badgered by their fans to hurry up and write faster. I remember being a whiny fan once. But that was before I published anything.

When I sped through the first draft of Blade of the Broken, I had written some truly horrible paragraphs and sentences. Not to mention all the misspelled words. Before writing the first draft, I naively thought my book would be out in a year… After that draft though, I knew more work needed done.

It would take more time.

When it comes to art, you should never rush. If you do, the work will be sloppy and everyone will hate it. Yes rushing is easier, but to make something good take your time. And don’t give into the hordes screaming for more right this minute.

Afterall, art is the thing that keeps the creator from going mad.

NaNoWriMo is coming !

PrintHear that ? No more kids screaming outside… You may also notice the weather is getting colder, and the leaves changing color.

This only means one thing: National Novel Writing Month is coming! 😀

Back in 2011, I wrote the first draft for Blade of the Broken. It was absolute chaos, but it worked… Now, since the book is published, its time to work on the sequel ! (Currently calling it Wrath of the Shadow King. Title may change. Always does during the first draft.)

Also, I wanted to encourage you to join up in this monumental task… Who knows? You might have a great book inside you!

P.S Feel free to kick my ass if I try to skip out. 😉

And if your participating my username is Jake S. ! .
