Writing Journal – The Fall of the Stone – 14 May 2023

I can’t believe I’m writing this, but I have advanced next to nothing over the past month. Even though I was very busy, I opened my manuscipt in my free time, and I wrote perhaps one paragraph. What’s happening? This is not normal for me at all.

Now that I have posponed the release for August, I am beginning to wonder if even that is enough time to get it all ready, edited, and formatted. There’s such little time, and I still haven’t finished the last chapter.

Sometimes I wonder if this book is meant to be published or if it shouldn’t, or perhaps I should just get a move on and focus. Is this what writer’s block feels like? Argh, why is it coming at the end of the book…? But is it still writer’s block if you know how the book will end but the words still don’t flow out?

Looking for a Great Book to Read? Look No Further!

In Camden Town, London, Eva leaves a party with a stolen jacket, followed by her ex-boyfriend, Darryn. She has no idea what dangerous item is hidden in her pocket. When her hand closes around it the ground splits open, whisking her and Darryn away into an underground time tunnel. Darryn’s brother Daniel, who is the only witness to the strange event, retrieves the Stone, unwittingly unleashing its owner, Aeron, a creature of darkness. Weakened by the loss of the Stone, Aeron is set on killing Daniel and recovering his lost power, but Calliope, a wayward harpy, puts a stop to his plan, snatching Daniel out of his grasp. "Now both siblings must confront monsters and work with unlikely allies as they seek to protect the stone from Aeron in two different time periods. This was a really fun adventure filled with all the creatures and lore you could want from a mythological epic! The time travel and double plot aspects of the story were great, and the characters were fun and meaningful! Anyone who reads my reviews knows that I love Percy Jackson, and this is a book that definitely captured a lot of that feel. If you love mythology, definitely come travel through time with The Path of the Stone!" (Amazon reviewer)
