So, about to second period of Young Fighters. I could say those three years were full of writing. I started to write the first version of the manuscript in summer 2005 and completed it about in a year. I spent all time I had writing, which sometimes was few hours a day or one day in a week. I didn't have many plans for the first version - I just wrote what felt right.
When I had finished the first version of the novel, I put the manuscript aside for six months. I knew there were many things that didn't work yet, but I didn't want to rush. I needed a break, too. So I didn't even read the manuscript during those six months. Nowadays I wonder how I was able to leave the text for so long time.
It was February 2007 when I started to work with my novel again. I was on holiday for a week and decided to use it writing, to make the story better. I made huge changes to the plot: I removed some scenes, I changed the order of most events in the book, I removed some characters and created new characters, planned new chapters, decided to put some of the events in the sequel... During that one week I wrote from nine to twelve hours a day, about 5,000 words every day. It was crazy. I had never experienced an inspiration like that before. It felt like I couldn't think anything but writing. My head was full of ideas, my characters were on my mind all the time.
I continued writing more regularly and kept working hard until I finished the second version of the MS. I read lot of books that year, for example Harry Potter series again, a lot of crime fiction and some novels we studied at school. Music inspired me more than before - 2007 was the year I found Daughtry. I listened to their first album every time I wrote and let the songs make wonders to my writing. Many of the scenes I created while listening their music are still in the first Young Fighters novel - I have only developed and edited them.
This huge, long state of inspiration took me to the point where I was fifteen years old, I had finished two versions of my first novel and started to make third one. If the second period of Young Fighters should be described by two words, the words would be progress and inspiration. There were no problems, only happiness and developing in the period - writing felt like the easiest and the loveliest thing to do.
