Even though Ezra’s story, Book 1 in my series, isn’t complete, I’ve signed up for NaNoWriMo. I need to learn how to speed up my writing so …
I’m starting to write Michael’s story, Book 2 in the series, on November 1. The goal is to have the 50K word draft at the end of the month.
So far I have the hero and heroine, the conflict (I think), and a vague plan for the HEA. There are still a few days before writing begins so maybe a bit more of a plan will happen before that!

Do The Work.
Mostly what I’ve been thinking is Writing is Hard but the reality is I need to Do The Work.
My favorite line? Too many to pick from but here is one:
The inner critic? His ass is not permitted in the building. Steven Pressfield
Dogs seem to be the go to animal in romance novels. Men who have dogs, women who have dogs, women who love men who have dogs. You get the picture.
Thinking about giving one of my characters a cat.
Just because I can.
P.S. I do like dogs. 🙂
I see the word minx in almost every romance novel I read with the same reaction each time: who uses that word?
Has anyone ever used that word in real life?
Trying to embed Spotify playlist here. So excited to do this!
Besides the writing, which is hard enough, there are a multitude of things that are to be done.
Searching for a theme is absurdly time consuming. There are so many to look at and consider.
Coming up with topics for the posts. I’ll need a list.
Taking pictures for the posts. That means reminding myself to be aware and capture what I see.
There is more.
But this is a start.
Plotting is finished for Ezra’s story, first two chapters are in draft and already I’m ready to change it all.
Welcome to the home of my future books.
They are only drafts at the moment, but each day brings me a little closer to their being real.
Learning to write them has turned into quite the journey and I hope to share of bit of that along the way.
Thanks for dropping by!
