A Funny Thing Happened As I Worked On The Website
I realized Broken Promises is an easy manuscript to walk away from, which isn't a good sign. The story premise is good and I love the characters, but there's been no fire. I mean, last week I started my new writing challenge with my Austin RWA group and I've barely written 1500 words on Broken Promises. It was easy to walk away from it when I decided I HAD to finish the website. When I was putting the finishing touches on that last night, I thought about going back to Broken Promises today. Immediately I got a nugget of golden inspiration from an old hero from my manuscript Resisting Ryan. Again I walked away from Broken Promises, this time to start rereading Ryan's story, which immediately got me giddy and excited and smiling like a fool to anyone who would listen to me today. So I didn't need that frying pan up the side of my head. Broken Promises is a great story I definitely want to share. Just not now. I've got the fire with Ryan and his heroine. I've got a good premise for that and some great scenes to work with. I'm following Caitlin and jumping headfirst into that fire!
