The life of a writer is never stagnant, no matter how long it takes to finish writing a novel, hear a response from an editor, or think up the next scene or story.
I’m in the middle of all-of-the-above right now. My romantic suspense, In Plain Sight, the first in a proposed series, From the CIA, is wandering the inboxes of selected agents and editors while you read this. The sequel to Court of Lies, Window of Lies, is awaiting its last two chapters, which I continually swear I’ll finish today-okay tomorrow, but soon.
I have no set schedule for writing or thinking up my next step in a story. Rather, it all happens when the time is right. Matter of fact, I’ve always been a panster-little preplanning of plot- for the most part, but when I start the next two (I’ve turned into the author who has two novels going at once) I decided to make a lengthy plan for each.
Why would I do something silly such as change my system? I think it’s because the next novels will have more complicated plots and sub-plots. Or maybe I like to drive myself crazy and pull more hair out as the screen and I have “staring” contests!
Either way, I love every part of writing novels. Writing the novel is great, editing the drafts are a nice change of pace-to read scenes I’ve forgotten about supply my own surprises, and the thrill of working with an editor at the publishing house is inspiring and always full of lessons.
And even more fun, is chatting with the readers! I always want to know what you’re thinking, your questions, your expectations of a great story, and I’m excited to be here with you today :-)
