I’m taking a break from writing at the moment. The creative juices are flowing, so I have to take advantage of this quiet time. Carter is taking his nap and Vanessa is practicing her softball skills. Writing a fiction book is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be, that’s for sure. Trying to come up with an interesting story and characters has been a challenge for me. I’m having a hard time taking myself out of the book. When I wrote M is For Mom, Not Maid, it was all about me and things that have happened to me so it was easier to write than this fiction book.
I was watching Marley & Me last night and around midnight, I started having ideas, so I busted out my laptop and began typing. The only light I had was from the laptop, but that was all I needed. I just had to make sure to get all the ideas down and saved that were coming to me before I forgot about them. My eyes were getting so heavy, but I knew I wouldn’t remember my ideas by morning. Now, I’m ten pages into the new book with my story and characters outlined. I’ve even picked out a few titles for the book, which I will share later.
Domestic Diva is also still in the works. I’ve been working on a few cover ideas. This is my favorite so far:
In between all this writing I’m also searching for an agent. I’m new to all of this so I have no idea what I’m doing. I’m just going with it. I’ve got a few agents narrowed down based on things I’ve researched about them, so it’s time to start writing out my proposals. Wish me luck on that!
I guess break time is over, so it’s back to writing. Let the brain storms commence!
