I can’t really think of any other words for this post. I’m giddy with excitement, like I’m in love for the first time. Why? I can’t stop writing! I’ve got the seed of a new novel in my head, and ideas are pouring out nonstop.
Is this the initial infatuation phase? You’d better believe it! I was recently infatuated with an idea for a YA novel for NaNo. I started it, felt good about it until day five, then shelved it for now. Because a bigger and better idea came to me, something that would reach more people and stay more in line with my audience.
For those of you who loved Aurora’s sassy-girl ways in Otherworld, my new main character also has a little spice with her sugar.
I’m writing in past tense (new to me!), but still first-person. I’m trying to integrate all the dialogue techniques I’ve learned along this ever-arduous journey.
Let me state for the record, that though I love God’s Daughter, I’m having so much fun getting out of the Old Norse mindset, back into the twenty-first century, with all its Jimmy Choos and mohair throws.
Oh, and did I mention that this novel starts off in Manhattan? Yes, like every popular romantic film you’ve ever seen! Cliche? Maybe! But it’s going to work because I did actually live there for awhile. I didn’t love it, like my MC, but that makes no difference. She’s not me!
Just wanted to give a thoroughly upbeat and boom-a-licious update on my writing journey. I would NOT be doing this, if it weren’t for the uplifting words offered by my husband, my friends and other writing peeps out there! God bless you, every one!
