Last week I finished my paranormal novel and sent it off to my agent. This weekend Ursula finished up all her editing projects and now it's time to start something new.
Ah, the possibilities! I keep a project list on my bulletin board above my desk. It has currently eleven (11) titles listed on it. Mostly sequels to stories I've already written and a few half formed ideas for Single Titles.
Over the weekend I worked feverishly on a synopsis [I know I hate those, but decided to try something new and write one FIRST] for what I hope to be a single title sci-fi e-rom for Bernadette and a synopsis for the sequel to the book I just finished.
Then I had one of those brilliant flashes of inspiration and a cool title [for which I have no story] appeared in my head. I went to my Idea file to enter it into my long list of cool titles for which I have no stories and then got caught up in reading all my story ideas and I came across one that was originally going to be historical. I don’t write historicals so why I came up with the idea, I don’t know, but then I had another one of those brilliant flashes and realized this historical could be converted to a sci-fi/futuristic.
And I was off and running. Now I’ve got half of chapter one done, no synopsis of course, but I don’t care. I’m going to see where this one takes me. Then maybe I’ll get back on track with the 11 projects waiting patiently in the queue.
