I've finally got it, the perfect opening for what will be my 13th MS. Lucky 13? Who knows, but I've got one heck of an idea for the opening and the book itself. It's very exciting when an idea that's been percolating suddenly takes form and solidifies to the point where you feel ready to start writing it. This story I have in mind is based on something that actually happened in my town, but of course it will be a fictionalized version.
I'm not quite ready to write yet, however, because I'm revising yet another book and I want to finish that before I start something new. Life is chaotic enough without taking on too much on the writing "job."
This weekend is my RWA chapter's annual conference. This will be the third year in a row that I've been to the conference, and I'm looking forward to it. Being around other writers is always a shot in the arm, and getting away from home for a night is also just what I need right now. This will be the first time I've been able to sign a book at our Book Fair, so that's also a big thrill. However, it also means I have to stick it out to the bitter end at the conference. Oh well, it's worth it!
Sorry to be an infrequent blogger lately. Things have just been TOO busy!
