Well, I finally decided to take the jump and make a blog for my writing. I’ll blog here about the ups and downs on my way to publication. So join me in the adventure of writing. I wrote some poems in middle school. By the time I got into High School, I’d stopped writing, but there were always stories and characters running around in my head. Last October I picked back up my writing, but not poems this time. The crazy thought that popped into my head was to write a novel. . Having no clue how to do it, I put it off for a few days, but the characters wouldn’t shut up until I picked up a pencil and paper and started writing.
So, I rolled up my sleeves and got started. Things were going great. I wanted to write a YA (Young Adult) book because I have daughters and one that reads those books. Well, that went downhill fast on me. I mulled over it for a few days and still tried to get it to come together, but it wouldn’t. My characters wouldn’t behave; they wanted to hop into bed, and for me, I just couldn’t write that into a YA book.
Two days later, a new idea for a book came to me, and I was off and running. There wasn’t a day that the characters didn’t talk to me, and things fell into place. It was then I realized that I was much better suited to write in the romance genre. Now I couldn’t be happier. Since then, I’ve finished the manuscript, and it’s currently on an editor’s desk. I’m waiting to hear if they want revisions, or if they want a full manuscript (because right now they have first three chapters), or if they will pass on it. I’ve been busy working on the sequel in the series, and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turning out.
