A lot. I've decided that Under Cover of Darkness isn't right. I liked it originally, but now it just doesn't sit well. I feel like it's too long and it's not dramatic enough. So, as I'm resurrecting the current book of my heart, I'll search for a new name.
Today was productive. The villain revealed some exciting information to me that will change the whole direction and feel of the book. I've started brainstorming (with the help of my Kiss of Death chaptermates) the hero's motives. It's awesome. I can't remember getting into this much detail of a character's backstory. This was probably part of the problem with my in-between manuscripts. I already feel like I know more about my hero than I ever did while writing the 317 pages that made up the story until last night. Since I'd been targeting Bombshell (heroine driven stories), I already know a lot about my heroine. Still, I look forward to uncovering more of her personality and motives.
A happy birthday goes out to my best friend, Nancy, and to another friend, Emily McKay! I hope you both had a chance to have some fun and spend some time with people who love you.
