Shaka-POW!


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!

  1. Your enthusiasm is inspiring and hopefully catching. The past few days have been so busy for me I have not had a moment to do any writing, which really stinks because I had a great scene in my head…I hope it's still there when life slows down enough for me to write it.Keep us posted and have fun!
