It’s Monday…all day…

3 Comments

Good morning! Why are Monday’s so rough? It might take the whole pot of coffee this morning. But on the good side, it’s slightly cooler this morning, so, I’ll be doing a little writing outside this morning before I head to the office.

As I’ve been telling you, I’m working on a Scottish Highlander series. I was almost done with the first book when it happened. I know, you’re asking what ‘it’ is, well, let me explain. Ok, I was typing along, loving the storyline when all of a sudden the story took a detour. It went downhill from there, but I kept trudging through, thinking it would get better, but alas, it didn’t.

Needless to say, I pulled back, read it from word one and found where the story went wrong, then did the unimaginable, I pressed delete for two whole chapters, two! It hurt, but on the other hand, it felt liberating. When I started back up, the story took on new meaning and the story is now going well.

It’s funny when you know something isn’t working, but you keep going anyway, just hoping it will change. Now, I’m working on getting back the two chapters of work and finishing up. Since this one will be sent to the editor that wants highlander romances desperately, I’ll be working on the synopsis for the two books that come after it. Yep, I’m submitting for a trilogy. Fingers crossed!!!

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…2350462608_44a5fa8914

  1. The best laid plans, right? Bet yourcharacters refused to talk to you anymore! Thank goodness they can keep “us” from ruining “their” story. 😊

    • That’s for sure. With every push of the delete, it felt like I was losing something important. But I’ve rewritten those chapters today and now they flow wonderfully. I think my characters may be somewhat happy with me again, but we’ll have to see how they fair going forward 😉

  2. Great post. I used to be checking continuously this weblog and I’m impressed!
    Very useful information specifically the closing section 🙂 I care for such information much.
    I used to be looking for this particular information for a long time.
    Thanks and good luck.
