I write romance. Love stories. One person finding that one other person, the one that completes them, then doing what they have to for that ‘happy ever after’ ending. I have been privileged to witness a real life love story unfolding right before my eyes over the past two years, and I have to admit, it’s better than anything I will ever write.
This past weekend I attended the wedding of my son and my new daughter-in-law. A chance meeting on the internet threw together two individuals from different worlds, different countries. Governmental red tape, language barriers, and frustrations that would have broken apart many couples, simply brought these two closer together, fighting for their love and their lives together. And thank goodness. They are so right for each other.
In my writing I often look at the motivations of my characters. What draws them together? What tears them apart? At the heart of it all is Love.
Still playing with the look of the blog. The last theme seemed a bit busy.
I’m very excited with the thought of being published. A Requiem for Poseidon is set in the same universe as Son of Thunder and Daughter of Darkness. I sent a new edit of Son of Thunder to my agent and I’m looking forward to her comments. I was inspired to do some work on Daughter of Darkness yesterday. I think that story is coming together nicely, and meshing well with SoT.
I also have a new story boiling in my brain. I’m planning on holding off starting it until November to use as my NaNoWriMo novel. It’s something completely different. I’m still not sure if I should be working on something different, or the sequels of the things I’ve already written. I’m hoping my agent will give me some direction on that.
Anyway, it’s all got to be written eventually, so I guess it doesn’t matter what I work on right now. After this next weekend I should have a good stretch of uninterrupted writing time to play around in, so I will dive deeply into some project.
