When last I posted, I was starting on an idea for my next manuscript. Well, I'm 10 chapters done and figure I'm halfway there.
I really want to wrap this up by mid-August if I can. Why? Because I work better with a deadline. At this rate, I think I can do it. This is one of those books that is sort of writing itself. I did some research and fleshing out ahead of time, but mostly I'm making it up as I go along. I've had several of those "wow" moments as I write, where the character does or says something and suddenly the plot takes a twist -- I love when that happens.
I'll be taking a break next week to go to the RWA national conference. I haven't been to an RWA con in about 10 years (has it really been that long?) This should be fun; it's in Denver, one of my favorite cities, easy to get to (one plane hop away), and I'll see a bunch of friends I haven't seen in awhile. Those 4 or 5 days away from writing will, I hope, energize me so I can finish up before my self-imposed deadline.
I'll report back in on the conference when I get back -- I wonder how much it's changed since the last time I was there....?
