Working On My Latest
My newest novel seems to be taking an inordinate amount of time to complete. That doesn't make it bad ~ it makes it good! This so-far untitled story features a murder, but I haven't yet decided who did it. The main character has issues of her own, but the suspects are myriad. Pretty much everyone has a reason to kill.
Taking place over a long holiday weekend, family secrets come unraveled. 
I'm excited to find out who did it!
And you will be the first to know!

I'm continuing to think about my latest novel. Thinking is underrated. I'm not an outliner, so my planning, such as it is, is haphazard. I know what my denouement will be ~ it's just getting there that is the challenge. That said, I'm bullish on "Aubrey" (working title). Stay tuned...

What novel doesn't need a good playlist!

I allowed myself a long sabbatical after months of hair-pulling, self-doubt, and exhaustion finishing and editing Radio Crazy, The good news is, I am now in the midst of writing my third novel, which has no name. I will let it tell me what it wants to call itself once I delve a bit deeper into the story. For too long, I was uninterested in writing, but I think I needed that mental and emotional break before I could regain passion for a new tale. While the discipline of writing is a really valuable tool, forcing oneself to write is a sure guarantee of resultant crap (well, it is for me). Never fear, I am constantly writing, but writing in my blog is a liberating release. I don't have to obsess over every misplaced comma (or is it a semi-colon??)
That said, I'm rather excited about my new novel. I'm not an outliner, but I always have a vague path I intend to follow. Sometimes that path wends in directions that get me lost, but sometimes they lead me to amazing treasure.
